【题目】Environmental Sustainability – A marketing tool for libraries
Environmental awareness does not necessarily mean huge library’s financial efforts or a large budget. Ecological Sustainability as an underrated aspect for the marketing strategy of a library has more influence on clients and on stakeholders than one would expect. Passionate library users are calling on libraries not just to provide common services but to interact with a clear green identity. Libraries as pathways for knowledge and education are notably responsible not only to spread the idea of going or being green but to give an example as a demonstration vehicle. Environmental sustainability can serve as part of the marketing strategy of the library as a social accountable body. Just small steps in going green can make a big impact for the library’s image. Little financial input can bring effectual marketing outcome. Cooperation with outstanding partners like NGOs, friends of the library, library suppliers, school projects and last but not least the library users can work well to fulfill ecological demands on one hand and to convince stakeholders, customers and the public on the necessity of “going green” on the other hand. The paper will present examples from both public libraries and academic libraries from all over the world, dealing with ideas to gain recognition with a green identity that conveys an attractive market image. Examples will be taken also from the IFLA Green Library Award 2016. There is a wide range of examples promoting the idea of the GREEN library: Environmentally friendly or recycled materials, virtual user services, resource-saving copy-services, waste separation, elimination of plastic bags, no more paper cups but recycled/private china, fair-trade coffee in the library’s coffee shop, green events and choosing library suppliers with green certificates – or are working to get one of those.
