The Interlibrary Loan Department receives their Green Department certificate from Paula Williams, director of the UAA Office of Sustainability.

UAA's Interlibrary Loan Department (ILL) recently added their name to the list of departments green certified by the UAA Office of Sustainability. The initiative identifies and recognizes departments on campus taking extra steps to lower their operating costs, practice greener operations and reduce their environmental footprint.

Staff members Dawn Berg and Ellen Davis will make up the ILL Green Team. Berg says, "The ILL Department has been very green-conscious over the years and pledges to stay green going forward. The ILL Green Team, in conjunction with a library sustainability group, will provide information on sustainability efforts to the student workers and the Consortium Library every semester."

Becoming a green department is easy and can reap real rewards, including cost savings. The certification process is designed to provide resources, guidance and recognition to faculty, staff and students as they take steps to improve energy efficiency at work.
