The Social Sciences & Humanities Library (SSHL) honors Earth Week-
After three years of a California drought, with mandatory water rationing anticipated for this summer, thinking globally and acting locally has never been more important—or easier. Simple changes in everyday habits can conserve gallons of water a day.
Come to the SSHL Reference Area to check out a display on California’s water sponsored by UCSD’s Social Science & Humanities Library and the San Diego County Water Authority. Explore the colorful history of water in California and learn what you can do today to conserve this precious resource.
While you’re in the Reference Area, check out our display on books about environmental issues, along with a model solar house, on loan as part of UCSD’s Sustainability Initiative, and the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Project.
And don’t forget to leave your mark! SSHL wants to know your thoughts on Earth Week, the environment, and our campus wide sustainability initiative. Use the materials provided to make your mark on our Earth Week Graffiti Wall.
