Join us for a free ACRL Presents webcast, Reopening Campus During the Pandemic: Treading Water in the Deep End, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Central on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
Our patrons think it’s “business as usual” during these unusual times, but as COVID-19 consistently creates more questions, administrators and students look for answers in the usual place – the library. Libraries are often seen as a beacon of knowledge on campus, but what happens when there is no information to provide? This is where we found ourselves, in the deep end, with little notice and certainly no precedent for how to stay afloat. Join the dean and access services librarian from the University of Nebraska at Omaha to hear what their university and library did to prepare for reopening, and what they’re doing now to keep students safe and cared for on campus.
