Greening the Marriott Library
In 2008, the J. Willard Marriott Library formed a Green Committee (made up of library faculty and staff) to implement green initiatives identified in the library’s Green Task Force Report and to make future recommendations for the greening of the library.
The Green Committee has participated in sustainability related pilot programs such as
- The creation of the University's Energy & Environmental Stewardship Initiative: Climate Action Plan 2010
- Several student projects through the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund (SCIF), MUSE Project (My U. Student Experience)
- Re-Imagine the Plaza.
Reflecting the library’s overarching mission to inspire the creation, discovery, and use of knowledge for Utah and the world, the Green Committee leads the way in supporting the university-wide commitment to sustainability.
