About this talk
Librarians play a critical role in ensuring their researchers, students and faculty have access to research and the learning tools they need to be successful.
The global pandemic has forced educational institutions to close campuses and shift learning and research services to remote options. This shift took many people by surprise, but not to librarians who were already prepared to provide remote access and online resources to their users without disruption. In this webinar, librarians share their best practices on enabling uninterrupted access to research and education.
Topics covered in this webinar include:
•Infrastructure readiness – were policies in place for potential university lockdowns or was there a need to provide them?
•What worked right away and what improvements were made to services that didn’t work out of the box?
•Communicating and promoting available remote access options to users
•Challenges to working remotely
•Showcasing the move to remote online learning
