December 2, 2010 – Less than a month remains for unit workspaces in Harvard College Library to go green. With the January 1 goal set by the HCL Green Team for all HCL units to reach at least Green Leaf One certification rapidly approaching, three more units recently received certification. Maps, Media, Data and Government Information is now certified at Green Leaf One, while Reference Services and Learning Technology, and Services for Academic Programs units have each received Green Leaf Two.
Several HCL offices have already received certification. Human Resource Services, Houghton Library and HCL Operations have all reached Green Leaf Four. Harvard Map Collection and Tozzer Library have each reached Green Leaf One, with Tozzer planning to continue working on additional levels. A number of other units have submitted their applications and are awaiting certification. They include: HCL Information Technology Services, HCL Conservation, the Judaica, Slavic and Middle Eastern divisions of Widener and Widener Collection Development.
