More than the Environment
Sustainability is a buzzword, widely used in terms of the environment. However, it is an important concept that we can apply in a multitude of ways. In order to best serve our users, it is necessary to sustain our communities, our working relationships, and ourselves. As information professionals, we sustain knowledge by preserving and providing access to current and future generations.
As HLA President, Kara Plamann Wagoner, so eloquently stated in the HLA Board Response to the Potential Elimination of IMLS, we also specifically serve the community of Hawai‘i by uniquely blending Kanaka Maoli traditions and values through teamwork and technology to preserve indigenous knowledge and provide culturally relevant academic resources to Native Hawaiian students.
In keeping with our theme, what can we do within our professional roles to be good global citizens and sustain the information environment?
The Conference Planning Committee welcomes sessions on all library and information topics, but strongly encourages tying it to this year’s theme of sustainability.
