Abstract

Academic Library as Social Network site for Climate Change

Academic Library as a Social network site is made up of an interconnection among students, faculty, researchers, and educators with public areas to exploit Information and Repositories of Climate Change. USIU-A library and information center librarians designed a programme to highlight the effects of climate change to the current society. The library conducted climate literacy classes within the library and in classes. Provided mobile library service that promoted demand driven acquisition of books on climate change. This poster shares the experience of academic libraries being champions of climate change in the user communities they serve and also offers further recommendations to strengthen the campaign through inclusion of NGO’s, Volunteer groups, donors among others.
