CSU Library Sustainability Overview

  1. 1. Sustainability & the DLS<br />
  2. 2. What is sustainability?<br />&quot;Sustainability can be defined in terms of one goal: meeting the needs of the current generation without placing a burden on future generations.”<br />(McCarthy, 2007, p. 124)<br />East Melbourne Public Library sustainability collection by Katie Hannan, on Flickr<br />
  3. 3. CSU & Sustainability<br />Sustainability and global citizenship are central values of the CSU Strategy 2007-2011 (p. 3)<br />Sustainability is one of the four key themes of CSU&apos;s Institutional Development Plan [IDP] (p. 5)<br />The Division of Library Services Operational Priorities Plan 2009 (p. 8)<br />The University has also affirmed its commitment to sustainability by signing the Talloires Declaration, an international agreement signed by over 350 other universities around the world.<br />
  4. 4. The Institutional Development Plan<br />The IDP includes the following targets: <br />reduce energy use (compared with 2006) by 10% by 2011 and by 25% by 2015;<br />to reduce water use by 25% by 2011;<br />to have 10% of University land used to increase biodiversity by 2011 and 20% by 2015;<br />be greenhouse neutral by 2015;<br />a 70% reduction of solid waste by 2014;<br />increase the fuel efficiency of the vehicle fleet; and<br />cooperate with communities toward sustainability<br />
  5. 5. CSU Green office was formed as part of the University&apos;s sustainability efforts. <br />The office assists in monitoring what has been achieved and promotes and initiates activities.<br />A CSU Green website has been set up as a focal point for staff, students and community members interested in CSU’sSustainability initiatives<br />
  6. 6.

  7. 7. DLS: making positives changes for a sustainable future<br />Starting with…<br />The installation of new multifunctional devices at each campus library<br />
  8. 8. What’s a multifunctional device (MFD)?<br />An MFD will print, scan, photocopy and fax, so this means that we can recycle<br />the older technology (individual printers and scanners and fax machines).<br />From 44 devices across all campus libraries to 7 MFDs<br />Saving not only resources, but money and time as well<br />Additional functionality includes:<br />Scan to email and scan to folder function, enabling a paperless environment<br />Secure pin accessible printing<br />Improved output capacity (50 pages per minute)<br />High quality colour<br />
  9. 9. Think before you print<br />It’s important to think about whether you really need to print things out<br />Administration staff at the University currently …<br />Print over 13 million pages<br />Spend over $867,000 a year on printing<br />338 Printers<br />Printer Cost<br />Charles Sturt University.

  10. 10. Green Benefits of MFDs<br />Double sided printing  saving up to 30% in paper and copying costs.<br />Digital faxing, so there’s no need for a print out<br />New technology is more energy efficient than the ones we’re replacing:<br />
  11. 11. What happens next?<br />MFDs will be installed at each campus in November:<br />Bathurst Access – AficioMP 5000 digital black MFD <br />Bathurst Exec – AficioMP C5000 digital colour MFD<br />Bathurst Collection & Development Services – AficioMP 5000 digital black MFD (no fax)<br />Thurgoona – AficioMP C5000 digital colour MFD<br />Orange – AficioMP C5000 digital colour MFD<br />Wagga Access - AficioMP C5000 digital colour MFD<br />Wagga Collection & BusinesServices - AficioMP 5000 digital black MFD (no fax)<br />Training on how to use them will be run by (the vendor).<br />Business Services staff will be trained to become troubleshooting and consumable installation guides, and service manual administrators<br />
