Who is Using What, Where? An Analysis of Stakeholder Usage of Services & Collections During the COVID-19 Pandemic
In this presentation, we will share the results of our analysis of stakeholders’ usage of the library’s services & collections during the COVID-19 pandemic. The time period covered (March 2020-through the end of April 2021) includes several different operational models – from completely closed (with all services available only remotely online), to reduced staffing & hours with safety restrictions in place including no book check-outs (the stacks were closed), to the current model of reopened stacks with reduced staffing hours and social distancing restrictions.
