Future City: More than an opposition - it develops into a grounds joint effort extend! Susan Boyd Michael Orradre Library, Santa Clara University ELD/ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition – Chicago, IL., June 21, 2006

Slide 2

Civil Engineering Environmental Studies Institute University Operations/Facilities Residential Learning Community (RLC) Marketing the Exhibit The Evolution of a Library Exhibit CE Chair composed the coordinations for the Future City N. California Regional challenge. Given cases of Senior Design Projects in the class of "Economical Engineering Systems." Photos and development materials were in plain view from these tasks: Seismic powerlessness and manageability of dirt block structures in El Salvador. Human controlled utility vehicle. Given cases of manageable building materials used to develop the new "green" Kennedy Mall Student Center on grounds. Things included: supportable building materials, floor –mounted air diffuser, and a without water urinal. Given notice introductions of the best supportability ventures from an Environmental Studies class. Given photographs, outlines, clarifications and materials for their show titled: What is Sustainability? Worked together with the library on prescribing books and giving a list of sources of assets around there. Given a speaker to a lunch-time introduction: Consumption and Sustainability: Can we truly change? Moderator: Dr. Sean Watts, Environmental Studies Department FYI Article in the online personnel/staff bulletin. College Events Calendar Online connection to library page with more data. Email Announcements to Faculty and Staff. Library Homepage A connection to more data about the display, and a list of sources of manageability assets. Show proposition: Display winning models from the Future City provincial rivalry held at SCU on January 28, 2006. Asking for office: Civil Engineering. Conceptualize: What else would we be able to do notwithstanding having 1-2 city models in the library's entryway? Reply: Showcase the utilization of naturally amicable building materials on grounds and what each of us could do to advance supportability. What is the Future City rivalry? Yearly rivalry for 7 th and 8 th - review understudies supported by National Engineers' Week. Understudy groups utilize SimCity programming to plan a future city, and after that physically build a model city utilizing "reasonable" materials and techniques that would be in concordance with the earth. The point of the challenge is to further understudy enthusiasm for designing and science. It requires critical thinking, collaboration, research, introduction and PC aptitudes. Each local champ is welcome to take an interest in the national rivalry held in Washington D.C., amid National Engineers' Week in February. Library Exhibits: The Key to Success Collaboration: points of interest Creates grounds "buzz." Work together on programming. Expands the display. Commitments to the materials in plain view are shared among gatherings included. Makes positive PR for the library with different grounds associations. Address asked on a whiteboard as a piece of the display – a few proposals: "Shower-less and kill lights" "Utilize less paper and plastics" "Not eating abused fish species" "I take open travel" "Low water use, high-effectiveness lights, mostly sunlight based house" "Wanting to make a reasonable house completely out of Benson (SCU's understudy cafeteria) sustenance - it should be possible!" "Stroll rather than drive" "Fertilizing the soil rubbish" What Are You Doing for Sustainability? Benefits for the Library University Library Provides an instructive device. Supports academic action. Draws in the grounds and the encompassing group to the library. Exhibits the physical library versus the virtual one. If show space: Library entryway and four show cases accessible amid Winter Quarter 2006. Given a gathering space to arranging gatherings with show members. Given an organizer to the display: Susan Boyd, Engineering/Math Subject Specialist, Interim Science Specialist, and individual from the Library's Exhibits Committee and Marketing Committee. With Appreciation Campus Collaboration Dr. Steve Chiesa, Chair, Associate Professor, Civil Engineering Dr. Sean Watts, Post-doctoral Fellow, Environmental Studies Institute Dr. Virginia Madzek, Director of Campus and Community Programs, Environmental Studies Institute Joe Sugg, Assistant Vice-President of University Operations Lester Deanes, Resident Director, Cypress/Delphi RLC Sean Reinhart, Library Help Services Coordinator, and (Exhibit Layout Designer) Civil Engineering Department Environmental Studies Institute University Operations/Facilities University Library Students: Residential Learning Community (RLC) named "Cypress" (some time ago called Education for a Sustainable Future).
