[Libs-Or] Coronavirus Info for Oregon Libraries

Hi Folks,

Library Support staff created a LibGuide to provide information and resources about the coronavirus (COVID-19) as it related to libraries. It includes links to the ALA COVID-19 statement, pandemic policy examples, precautions to take during open hours, and more. If we receive any library-specific guidance, like about handling returned library materials, we will add it to the LibGuide.

Notice the two links in the Other Resources box. One leads to a spreadsheet with information about public libraries that have temporarily closed in the U.S. It includes a link to add information about your library, if it closes. The tool was created by Michael Sauers and Julie Erickson, librarians outside of Oregon. The other is a Google document of resources related to closures. Examples include lists of educational products that are temporarily free, info about Comcast offering 2 months of free Internet to low-income families, and virtual copyright office hours for higher education librarians with questions about copyright and online teaching. Anyone is welcome to add to the document.

Questions? Please ask.



P.S. Emails to State Library staff were bouncing earlier today, but that issue has been resolved. The problem was totally unrelated to the coronavirus. ;-)
