2008 ACRL/NY Symposium: Green Academic Library Outreach
Friday I am presenting at the 2008 ACRL/NY Symposium “The 21st Century Library: Targeting the Trends” at Baruch College in NYC. I am doing a non-traditional poster session. By non-traditional, I mean that I do not actually have a poster (say what?!). I do not have a poster because Amtrak guidelines would not allow me to bring my large poster board on the train. Due to the fact that my non-poster presentation is about practicing environmentally friendly methods of academic library outreach, I decided to practice what I preach (or do my best to try). I am taking mass transit from Lancaster to NYC as well as within the city, my non-poster did not require expensive printing or foam core spray mounting (rendering the poster board virtually useless after one presentation), and is fashioned from recycled materials.
As for handouts, I was supposed to print 170. Instead, I printed 75, on 30% post-consumer content recycled paper and I have sign up sheets for when/if I run out. Anyone who signs up during the Symposium will get a personal email from me including an electronic PDF of my one page handout, for their online viewing pleasure. Handouts are also available here on my blog and on the Symposium website for interested parties.
Please feel free to use any of these materials in your own way/shape/form. Many of my ideas and inspirations came from various blogs and articles, most of which I tried to link to here. Thank you!
