Green building and sustainable building both refer to the design and construction of buildings that have a minimal impact on the environment. Green building encompasses all phases of design, materials selection, and construction, including life-cycle analysis and energy efficiency.

This reference guide includes links to both popular materials and more technical information. It is not an exhaustive list and it includes information that will help you continue research at your local library. Materials held in the ISTC Library collection are followed by a call number in square brackets ([Call Number]). The ISTC Library does not lend materials directly to individuals. However, the Library does accept interlibrary loan requests. E-mail with comments or questions.
