  1. As a librarian at heart, this job announcement is very encouraging. We are building an online collection of sustainability videos addressing sustainability, aggregators, and reviewing for relevancy and quality. We realized early on in the project we needed a taxonomy and not finding one created it. Anyway, this prompted me to explore how to make our project better known to librarians as a resource. Thanks for the heads up.
