Library Tech Staff Response to COVID-19

Webinar

Library and Information Technology Association: Empowering libraries theiugh technology.Libraries are taking the necessary precautions to create a safe environment during the pandemic. Social distancing isn’t the only solution, but providing access to loanable technologies, including handling and quarantine of equipment, cleaning, and other safety and health concerns are just some of the measures put in place.

With the ongoing disruption to library services caused by COVID-19, what reopening planning policies should be considered for usage? In this free 90-minute presentation, our presenters will share tips that might be helpful to other librarians before they reopen.

Presenters Elisandro Cabada, Assistant Professor and Medical and Bioengineering Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Justin D. Kovalcik, Director of Library Information Technology at California State University, Northridge, and Sara Ramezani, Assistant Director for Popular Services at Cabell County Public Library in Huntington, WV, will also talk about the evolution of the phased plan from the establishment of a temporary computer lab in the library as COVID-19 began to spread in March 2020, to the current phased approach for gradual reopening. Justin will also offer insight into managed access, technology and services, workflows, messaging, and expectations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presented by the Library and Information Technology Association.

Topics: Planning & Policies, Containment & Mitigation
