We know that during this crisis, accurate information and resources can be hard to come by. We have brought together resources from topic and industry experts, fellow librarians, and SirsiDynix staff to help prepare your library, your community, and your ILS.

1. What is COVID-19 and how should I prepare my community?

2. What impact has this virus had on the country? How does social distancing help?

3. How do you prepare for a temporary library closure?

4. What should my library system know about this pandemic?

5. Are there any helpful tips I can give my employees on working from home?

We know that information regarding COVID-19 is rapidly changing, and we are working to curate the most up-to-date content in an effort to help keep you informed.
