A working space for the Sustainability Round Table.
I work in an academic library with a strong agriculture department (not sure if it makes a difference). I'd like to start a seed library in our library and I'm looking for information from anyone in an academic library setting that has experience starting and maintaining a seed library. I've found a fair amount of information on public library seed libraries but not much information for an academic library setting. Any information, tips, resources you can share? Thank you.
It's great that you are interested in starting a seed library at your university! I am part of the team running a seed library at Michigan State University, we have quite a bit of information on our resource guide: https://libguides.lib.msu.edu/SeedLibrary. It has been a very popular addition to the library. I'd be happy to set up a time for a zoom conversation about academic seed libraries or communicate via further via email. Hope to hear from you soon!
