Notes

Abstract: Since 2012, the Access Services Department at the University of North Texas has provided a Faculty Delivery Service to deliver books to faculty offices. As demand grows for this popular service, the Document Delivery team has recognized the need for more sustainable practices. The "It's in the Bag" pilot project was proposed to replace nonrecyclable, nonreusable plastic poly-mailers with environmentally friendly courier bags. The reusable courier bags were selected to provide sustainability and convenience while protecting faculty privacy and library materials.
