The Library Systems & Technology department is committed to efficient use of technology resources, recycling, and power savings:
- Since late 2008, the library's lab and staff printers have been using 100% recycled paper.
- The Library Systems & Technology team also participates in programs for the sustainable recycling of toner cartridges, small electronics, and "paper mining" (re-using used paper).
- Since January 2007, approximately 250 of the library’s computers have been configured to automatically shut-down for a minimum of 50-70 hours per week (with longer shut down times during winter breaks, summer and intersession periods).
An estimate of the power savings to the university since program inception in 2007 is:
|Per Month||To Date|
|Electricity Saved:||5,139 kWh||570,448 kWh|
|University Funds Saved:||$539||$59,802|
