In the 21st century, we are faced with news about the global environmental crisis on a regular basis. Rising temperatures, melting polar ice caps, loss of wild life, and deforestation are but a few examples of the coverage we are all too accustomed to. When faced with something with a global all-encompassing impact, it is sometimes difficult not to feel helpless and struggle to see the value individual contributions can have on fighting these challenges. So, what might libraries do to help reduce the carbon footprint and what could the impact of such efforts be?

Werner, Klaus U.; Hauke, Petra (2017). Green Libraries. Worldwide. A librarians’ tool. 4 Years later…: Poster presented at IFLA WLIC 2017, Wrocław, Poland.
The project we launched in 2013: A checklist as an easy-to-use tool that will allow librarians worldwide to see what they can do to make their libraries greener: a checklist available in many languages, so that it will be understood by colleagues even with little or no command of one of the official IFLA-languages. They will be enabled to communicate with their staff and their users in their native languages about green topics. Our starting point was the IFLA-Conference 2013 in Singapore and our book project The Green Library. The challenge of environmental sustainability (published in 2013 as IFLA Publication 161). Where are we now? The checklist was originally devised in English and German; during the last 4 years we were busy finding colleagues willing to translate the checklist into as many languages as possible – a tool for greening libraries worldwide! There are 20 language versions available at present on our website: Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, English, Finnish, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Usbek. The project is definitely to be continued: We are looking for more translation and adaptations, even into the multiplicity of “smaller” languages – for greener libraries worldwide.

Concept of Green Libraries gradually attracting attention of library administrators worldwide and the efforts to develop green libraries are on rise. This isbecoming a kind of movement now and has started gaining momentum in Indiaas well though it initially started in USA,UK and Canada who are leading countries to adopt the concept. The present paper discusses about current scenario of green libraries development in India and other developing countries. LEED is the major performance standard in countries abroad and IGBC is an Indian standard to measure the performance. The attempt is made to understand the concept, role of various associations and training available on green libraries, existing standards to measure the performance and pros and cons of the green libraries in general.

A Green Library also knows as a sustainable library, is a library build with environmental concerns in mind, Green libraries are a part of the larger green building movement. Green libraries are being build all over the world `Go Green' has become a buzz word in the 21st century. Recently libraries too have imbibed this phenomenon enormously. Green Library Movement, which comprises of librarians, Libraries, cities, towns, college and university campuses committed to greening libraries and reducing their environmental impact. Constructing a green library building using performance standards like Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) and Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is a way some libraries both abroad and in India are choosing to become green and sustainable. Environmental challenges like energy depletion and climate change will influence the type of information resources and programs libraries will provide to their communities. The present paper focus on the concept of `Go Green Library' in general and `Green Libraries' in particular. The attempt is also made to give information on different standards being followed, existing green libraries, practices and initiatives globally and locally.

A Green Library also knows as a sustainable library, is a library build with environmental concerns in mind, Green libraries are a part of the larger green building movement. Green libraries are being build all over the world, along with library 2.0 green design is an emerging trend, defining the library of the 21st century. A study of Green libraries in 2008 revealed that not only has energy conservation become important, but that spaces designed for users rather than books have become paramount the modular system worked particularly well for housing ever-expanding books collections but collecting growth is no longer practical goal. Users want and need a greater variety of spaces, which purpose build rooms are better at meeting.

In 2009, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opened a new library designed to meet the rigorous standards set by the U.S. Green Building Council for newly constructed facilities. The success of the project was officially recognized when the Church History Library received its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. This paper will trace how building plans originally focused on preserving archival materials were expanded to address larger environmental concerns. Also explored will be the impact a single green facility can have on the sustainable practices of an entire organization. Topics covered will include the Church History Library, its mission and collections; the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design programme; special environmental design characteristics of the Church History Library building; data on recycling efforts in the library and its parent organization; organizational impact of constructing a LEED-certified facility. Im Jahr 2009 eröffnete die Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints eine neue Bibliothek, deren Entwurf den strengen Standards des U.S. Green Building Council für neu errichtete Gebäude entsprach. Der Erfolg des Projektes wurde in der Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen, als die Church History Library ihr Zertifikat Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) erhielt. Dieser Beitrag zeichnet nach, wie Neubaupläne, die ursprünglich auf die Erhaltung von Archivmaterialien abzielten, erweitert wurden, um weiterreichende, umweltbezogene Anliegen einzubeziehen. Es wird ferner der Einfluss untersucht, den ein einzelnes grünes Gebäude auf die nachhaltigen Praktiken der ganzen Trägerorganisation haben kann. Behandelt werden der Auftrag und die Sammlungen der Church History Library, das Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Programm, die auf Nachhaltigkeit bezogenen Spezifika im Entwurf für das Church History Library Gebäude, Daten zu den Recylingmaßnahmen in der Bibliothek und ihrer Trägerorganisation sowie die Auswirkungen des Baus eines LEED zertifizierten Gebäudes auf die Trägerorganisation.

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of green building technologies and practices and illustrate how public libraries can use them as tools to teach their communities about sustainability and foster behavior change. Design/methodology/approach – Through literature searches, case studies analysis, and individual phone and e‐mail interviews, the author identified ways that public libraries can use their buildings to demonstrate green technologies and practices and show their patrons how to apply them at home, at work, and in the community. Findings – Education is a component of LEED certification. Many LEED certified libraries publicize a list of the green technologies used in their building projects. Some sponsor programs related to the green building and include permanent displays in the library to explain how the technology works. The Fayetteville Public Library went beyond these basic techniques to not only improve the sustainability of their operations but also become a community test bed for a renewable energy project. Originality/value – This paper sheds light on how building projects can be used not only to educate the public about green technologies and practices, but also inspire others to begin using similar techniques at home, at work, and in the community.

The green cover is depleting at an alarming rate and the big industrialists and the common man alike, are making all possible efforts to cause as much irreparable damage to the environment as possible, with each passing year. This article deals with how the impact of damage to environment also falls equally on libraries and in what ways can library professionals fight them back by just going outside the limits of conventional thinking. Librarians need to embrace GREEN and should promulgate & broadcast it to fellow librarians thus making it more than a place to check out reading materials. Paper canvasses how ICT captivates the librarians to ``Live Green, Love Green & Think Green'' also touching upon the false practice of Greenwashing.

The making of green libraries is moving toward a tipping point, producing a Green Library Movement, which is contained administrators, libraries, urban communities, towns, school and college grounds focused on greening libraries and lessening their ecological effect. Developing a green library building utilizing an exhibition standard is a way a few libraries are deciding to become green and practical. The paper examines about the different measures for greening the library other than building green library structures. It likewise advances different ideas and techniques for greening existing libraries and furthermore examine the need and significance of executing green library ideas.

Since the beginning of the 1990s, libraries have been undertaking a number of activities aimed at minimizing their negative impact on the environment. Those that show such activity are called ‘green libraries’. This term appears in scientific, professional and popular science literature, but its definitions are vague and ambiguous. A preliminary analysis of the content of publications dealing with the issue of green libraries shows a modest representation of theoretical and synthetic texts. This article aims to fill this gap. It has three goals: (1) clarification of the term ‘green library’, (2) conceptualization of the term ‘green librarianship’ and (3) determination of ‘green librarianship’ areas. To achieve them, first, an analysis of the environmental discourse on green libraries and green librarianship in library science literature was performed to abstract green library indicators. Then, these indicators were verified. The selection of the sample for research was deliberate. The materials were collected using the Library, Information Science & Technology Abstract (LISTA) bibliographic and abstract database. As a result, the number of green library indicators has been extended, which has made it possible to clarify the definition of this term. The definition of ‘green librarianship’ was then formulated, and the areas of green librarianship were indicated. Conceptualization of the terms ‘green library’ and ‘green librarianship’ constitutes the value of this article. The practical implication of the study is the expansion of the number of green library indicators. These indicators can be used to develop a codebook for the content analysis of documents in the discussed area. This article may also contribute to the development of methods for the evaluation of activities and development of green libraries.
