Academic resource sharing has been impacted over the last 18 months due to an unprecedented pandemic causing temporary physical library closures and reduction or elimination of sharing resources. Additionally, the impact of understanding the virus lifespan on physical materials also shaped how libraries are providing resources and fulfilling ILL requests in a timely manner. This session will provide updates from various library groups on how COVID impacted the library’s or group’s mission of sharing materials, the creation of new or improved resource sharing initiatives, and the cultivation of new partnerships in this new environment.
Sponsored by the Empire State Library Network, this session is an overview of how resource sharing has impacted library organizations and academic libraries in response to the pandemic.
The audience is academic directors and librarians and staff who support resource sharing. For more information, visit https://www.esln.org/resource-sharing-series/.
