This wiki is meant to provide a collaborative environment to develop a guide to resources and best practices to facilitate eco-friendly libraries and librarianship. It was created at the behest of the [Green Librarianship] discussion at [Library Camp NYC 2007]. The session was conceived and moderated by [Brita Servaes].

By the way here are some [tips for new wiki users].

Library Discards & Gift Books - some possibilities:

  • Better World Books
  • Strand Book Store- The Strand will also pay for salable gift books.
  • Bookmooch- I was wondering if anyone has tried this book-trading forum for library discards/duplicates. Taking a look at it, it reminded me of serials back issue and book exchange lists like BackMed and the Duplicates Exchange Union. This new format seems to modernize the trading process for people's individual collections. --Annm 11:33, 18 August 2007 (EDT)
