Librarians play a critical role in ensuring their researchers, students and faculty have access to research and the learning tools they need to be successful.
The global pandemic has forced educational institutions to close campuses and shift learning and research services to remote options. This shift took many people by surprise, but not to librarians who were already prepared to provide remote access and online resources to their users without disruption. These librarians share their best practices on enabling uninterrupted access to research and education.
