FINAL for A3-Green-dropshad.png

The Library and Knowledge Service have a number of resources available to support the sustainability aims of the UHDB Trust and the wider NHS.

New Collection

We've introduced a new Sustainability Book Collection, and you can view these in the list here. We've also incorporated some nationally purchased e-books, which can be accessed through Kortext. For more information on the collection and how to access see the information on this page below!

Prize Draw!

To celebrate the launch of the new Sustainability Collection we have two, YES TWO prize giveaways! 

Firstly is a Word search competition, (see PDF for download or available to collect within the library sites).

Secondly, if you have engaged with the collection, you can fill in our feedback survey here, which will give you another opportunity to win! All feedback and suggestions on the collection is appreciated, and of course you can contact the Library with any suggestions for resources, book stock or general ideas around sustainability!

Wordsearch

Bye Bye plastic wrapping!

From June 2024 we have stopped covering our books in plastic wrapping. This is reducing plastic use and preventing harmful microplastics being added to the environment when books are sent for recycling. Please take extra care with our uncovered books, to help us prolong the lifespan of our printed materials.  

Green Grant

We have recently been successful as a Library service to secure a Green Grant from NHS England to support sustainability projects. Watch this space as we have plenty of new ideas and initiatives coming up including developing our green spaces!

We'll be looking at introducing more greenery into the library by adding more indoor plants. We're also aiming to increase education around keeping plants and are looking into developing a seed library in the future. Check out our books on plants and gardening!

If you would like to donate any houseplants to the library, please let us know!
