This will be a recorded panel discussion - 60 minutes in length produced by Choice:
COVID-19 has reshaped academic library service and staffing models – with many institutions opting for fully remote work or a hybrid staffing schedule for library staff. As we begin to plan for gradual re-entry of an increasing number of students and faculty on campus, academic libraries must determine what staffing models can best achieve high-quality service delivery with often residential student experience. Even institutions that are commuter-centered must grapple with the safe co-location of students and the library workforce. In this webinar, a panel of academic library leaders will discuss their thoughts and plans towards creating equitable staffing models in the current and post-COVID landscape.
Panel of speakers: Elaine L. Westbrooks Vice Provost for University Libraries & University Librarian University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Chris Bourg Director of MIT Libraries Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Terry Snyder Librarian of the College Haverford College
Dr. Theresa S. Byrd Dean of the University Library University of San Diego
