As a Public Services Coordinator, sustainability would not normally be part of Anne’s role. Despite this, through her enthusiasm for environment issues, Anne has worked hard to drive the sustainability agenda within the library. She leads a committed and passionate group of ‘Go Green Champions’ who have successfully implemented a number of initiatives over the years including monthly recycling challenges, book swaps, stationary giveaways, pen recycling and energy efficiency improvements.
These initiatives have helped to inspire countless staff and students that pass through the library on a regular basis and have resulted in a gradual change in attitudes amongst library staff.
Many of the initiatives that Anne has championed have been rolled out across the University due to their success within the library and they are often used to inspire other Go Green teams.
