Hosted by Online Education and Membership Committees
Thursday May 3rd
12-1 pm pacific, 1-2 pm mountain, 2-3 pm central, 3-4 pm eastern
No need to register. All are welcome, not just students.
We will begin with a brief history of SustainRT, some exciting initiatives, and ideas for getting involved.
Then we’ll open the floor for questions about sustainability in librarianship and how we can infuse our careers with sustainability values and contributions.
Remember, student membership for SustainRT is free when you become a member of ALA! SustainRT is almost 800 members strong (and growing) and dedicated to fostering regenerative communities and moving toward a more equitable, healthy, and economically viable society.
Whether you’re able to join the Zoom conversation on May 3rd or not, you can stay up to date through our discussion list, blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
Students can also offer ideas and feedback through this form.
We look forward to connecting with LIS students so you to make a difference in ALA and the profession. If you would like more information, please contact any of us from the SustainRT Membership Committee.
The ALA Sustainability Round Table (SustainRT) is pleased to announce free memberships for LIS students!
Beginning September 1, 2017, students may join SustainRT for free. To qualify for a free membership, students must be:
- Currently enrolled in ALA-accredited Master of Library Science/Master of Library and Information Science (MLS/MLIS) program.
- Student members of ALA.
SustainRT strives to achieve a more equitable, healthy and economically viable society by providing resources for the library community to support sustainability through curriculum development; collections; exhibits; events; advocacy, communication, library buildings and space design. SustainRT is a member of the ALA’s recently formed Office of Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) which supports library and information science workers in creating responsible and all-inclusive spaces that serve and represent the entire community.
Membership affords ample leadership opportunities to infuse sustainability throughout the library profession.
