Submitted by pottier on Filed under Library News:  Mills
With thousands of people going through the doors each day, McMaster libraries are some of the most utilized buildings on campus and therefore also generate a lot of waste and use a lot of energy. In response, the Arts & Science Technology and Society class has launched a service learning initiative, with the goal of researching and raising awareness about these issues, ultimately reducing both physical and energy waste in the libraries.
