Latest News @ the RAU Library

Climate Week 2-8 March!


Can you help us to make the RAU Library more green this Climate week 2-8 March, and beyond?

A few things can make a big difference:

• Turn lights off if they aren’t needed in the Library Reading Room and Journals Room and try to make the most of natural daylight.
• Re-use paper that that has already been printed on one side in your printers
• Dispose of any unwanted paper in the paper recycling bins provided
• Recycle your plastic bottles in the relevant recycling bins
• Don’t print out anything unless absolutely necessary
• Re-use envelopes
• Turn scrap paper into note-pads
• Photocopy and print double-sided
• If you have any unwanted books in good condition you can bring them to us! The Library is using an environmentally friendly charity for all those books that need a good home. Nothing goes to landfill!
• Cycling or walking is an enjoyable and alternative way to come to the library.

If you need more information on climate change, environmental economics, environmental impact and social responsibility search the library catalogue or our Find it @ RAU tool – or just browse the library shelves.
