All who share an interest in reducing the environmental impact of interlibrary loan operations were invited to attend this webinar in which Dennis Massie, OCLC Research program officer and author of the upcoming report, Greening ILL Practices, discussed a study of current resource sharing practices recently undertaken by a team of environmental impact consultants. Utilizing data provided by OCLC and gathered during interviews with staff at a dozen US libraries, the consultants were able to correlate specific interlending practices with measurable impacts on greenhouse gas emission levels. Dennis discussed the key recommendations indicated by the data and shared best practices already in place at several participant libraries. Attendees were also encouraged to share their own techniques for greening ILL operations.
