Register for Upcoming Webinar: Rare Books and Special Collections Adapting to a Global Pandemic
When: 10 February 2021
The IFLA Rare Books and Special Collections Section is offering a panel discussion on the different experiences, plans, and lessons learned about providing services and continuing operations during a pandemic. Learn how special collections librarians from Spain, Sweden, Singapore, and the United States, representing national libraries, university libraries, and archives have thought about strategies for both remote and in-person work under COVID-19.
This will be an opportunity for the broader IFLA rare books and special collections community to talk about what we have learned this year – and how we expect to operate in the future. There will be time for questions and discussion.
