    'Best Practice for Australian University Libraries' is a federally funded project which has investigated current 'best practice' activities within Australian academic libraries and made reference to relevant best practice activities at selected international sites.

Calculations show that the incorporation of the ALS has saved more t sq. meters of built space (a 38% reduction) and the associated ongoing energy costs.
