AASHE Special Opportunity for Librarians & LIS Staff

We'd like to let you know about an opportunity recently posted in AASHE's Discussion Forums that will likely be of interest to you1 – a Library as Partner in Creating Curriculum for Sustainability survey.

The survey "explores the level of engagement of academic libraries and information studies schools in... educating for sustainability on university and college campuses across North America." It is designed by three academic librarians active in AASHE, who plan to analyze the results and share key findings. They anticipate the survey will take 10-20 minutes to complete, and they will protect the confidentiality of your responses.

Those who complete the survey may be entered in a drawing for one of ten Better World Books $20 gift certificates and one of ten Starbucks $10 gift certificates. To participate in the drawing, please provide your email address at the end of the survey. The survey closes May 2, 2012.

To take the survey, click here.
