The Glucksman Library are delighted to announce the launch of our annual Special Collections and Archives Advent Calendar

Our advent calendar this year focuses on the issue of sustainability in relation to preserving and caring for heritage collections in perpetuity. Sustainable collecting goes beyond just taking a considered approach to energy and materials use, to the very question of what we collect and why.

Sustainability is a key concern for today’s society, ensuring we are doing everything in our power to safeguard our planet for future generations. Sustainability operates at every level of society, from global and national strategies to fight climate change, to the development of new technologies and renewable sources of energy, to individual responsibilities to reduce our carbon footprint and have a positive impact on the world around us.

Subscribe or check back each day in December to explore how questions of sustainability shape the collection, curation and dissemination of archives and special collections at UL Library.
