Title Recommendations for greening the J. Willard Marriott Library: report of the Marriott Library Green Task Force
Date 2008-09-25
Description The completion in Fall 2008 of the extensive renovation of the J. Willard Marriott Library and the moving of many staff groups back into the Library presents an excellent opportunity to identify and promote environmentally responsible practices and encourage sustainable behaviors. Recognizing this, Marriott Library director Joyce Ogburn in June asked for volunteers for a Green Task Force and charged it with creating a recommendations report for consideration by the Library's Executive Council. Fourteen people volunteered, including one from the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library and one from the S. J. Quinney Law Library, and the Green Task Force met weekly from June 23 through September 17, 2008. Representatives from the Office of Sustainability and the Energy Management Office attended the meetings as well in an advisory capacity. The group quickly discovered that the members brought with them a wealth of previous experience in "green" initiatives.
