National Library Week Meets Earth Day

libraries-going-greenThis year, it’s not just about the books. We’re celebrating National Library Week at Falvey by introducing green service initiatives that allow us to reduce paper waste by using cutting-edge technology. Document delivery services are provided to all students, staff and faculty who require scanned images of Falvey-owned journal articles or limited sections of library books. This service is provided via the ILLiad request system that we currently use to process interlibrary loan requests. Another service we will begin to offer is the direct scanning of books, journals, and other materials that faculty wish to place on electronic course reserve. This eliminates the need for faculty to submit photocopied materials, which was formerly a requirement for scanning. Once the items are scanned, they will be returned to the professor and the files will be uploaded to Blackboard, the University’s course management system. We are making National Library Week at Falvey a segue to Earth Day events on campus.

Join us in the National Library Week celebration by trying our Earth-friendly services!
