Originally in cooperation with the Berlin School for Library and Information Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany, and with support from IFLA Library Buildings and Equipment Section and from ENSULIB, several book projects were completed. They all focus on sustainability from various points of view. All publications are available online, as open access/under an open access license.
