Libraries Press on Despite COVID
Tuesday, 11/9/2021 – Wednesday, 11/10/2021
There is no doubt that COVID has impacted the way libraries serve their communities. This Core e-Forum provides a space for individuals to share the library workflows affected, the challenges that were presented, how individuals and libraries adapted to challenges and changes, and where we might see libraries going from here.
During this discussion, attendees will:
Identify the workflows that were affected by the pandemic
Examine workflows, both effective and ineffective, that were implemented in response to COVID
Identify/develop future effective workflow practices based on lessons learned
Who Should Attend
Anyone with interest about how COVID affected library workflows are encouraged to join and participate.
