The Pollution Solution: Archival Collections about Recycling


One of the single biggest problems the world faces is pollution and how people must change their habits to find a better solution. The IUP Special Collections and University Archives welcomes resources that offer collaboration with the community. The Pollution Solution archival collection was one of the first collections donated by a community activist group. This singular collection and now dozens more reflect the diversity and meaningful impact within the community. More than 250 manuscript groups have been donated by individuals, businesses, organizations, and activists throughout Pennsylvania. How can your community change the mindset of students and the future? There are many concerns about the sustainability of recycling in the region as well as the world. This presentation will feature discussion about the collection and the impact on collection development with regard to the environment and finding sustainable methods of recycling that can be exhibited to our students, university employees, and the community.
