This study aimed to investigate the gender differences regarding personal norms of university librarians, gender differences regarding the behavioral intention to use green computing in libraries, gender differences regarding the ascription of responsibility regarding the use of green computing in libraries, and gender differences in terms of green computing for environmental concerns regarding the use of green computing in libraries. This study adopted a quantitative research design. The data were collected from 46 universities located in Lahore and Gujranwala. Seventy-five male and 57 female librarians provided data to complete this research. In data collection, the researcher employed a closed-ended questionnaire.
