Research Libraries: “Historic Pandemic Poses Lasting Impact on Libraries, Scholarship”
The University libraries closed their doors to students and the public and limited the number of staff following an email notice of a COVID-19 case on campus, Deputy University Librarian Nora Dimmock said. “Our main focus (has) turned to teaching and learning and helping to get faculty and students the materials that they needed so that they could resume instruction.”
Speaking about the impact of COVID-19, Dimmock thinks “that libraries will be different moving forward.”
“I think that we will look more closely at our digital collections,” she added.
