COVID-19 Resources for Academic Library Staff

The ACRL-Oregon Board is currently investigating how we can most help people who work in Oregon academic libraries and we are seeking feedback from y’all.

First, we have started a document of resources with the intent of helping one another quickly find best practices, guidance from other academic libraries and training opportunities to get us through this. Feel free to use the resources in the document, and add links if you found something helpful that you’d like to share.

Sharing resources seemed like a good first step, but what next? In order to guide us in how to best advocate and help academic library staff in Oregon, we need to hear from you. What are some pending questions you have about academic librarianship and the pandemic? What do you need help with? Are there things you’ve done at your library that have worked well for you? Or things that did NOT work that you want to warn others against? We want to hear about it! So please let us know what you are doing / what you need by filling out this survey.

We hope you all are surviving to the best of your ability. Feel free to email a committee member if you have any questions!

In Solidarity,
