ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to discuss concrete ways to contribute to the sustainability of the planet by actively applying and using digital and IT resources in libraries. To this end, a survey was conducted for librarians of public libraries, and the results were as follows. First, librarians’ awareness of the seriousness of environmental problems and the degree of eco-friendly activities were very high, but their awareness of library green IT and familiarity with eco-related terms were very low. Nevertheless, there was a high degree of agreement on the importance of applying green IT to libraries. Second, the areas evaluated as having the highest contribution to eco-friendliness and greening of the library were found in the equipment and product operation area, followed by the service area and the network and system area . Third, how do you think library green IT will have a social impact? The highest opinion was given that it could increase the awareness of the library’s social responsibility as a social infrastructure. In conclusion, it seems that the library’s green IT can contribute to improving library perception by making the public perceived as an institution that has a social responsibility as a social infrastructure.
