Join us for the Virtual Workshop organized by the Friends of the National Library of Medicine (FNLM) to be held March 17, 2022, online.
The COVID-19 global pandemic instantly reshaped how libraries function – from services to workflows, from technologies to communications. As librarians continue to adjust to these sudden changes, there remains the question of to what degree will these changes stick, especially as the world's population encounters future global shifts. Numerous lessons were learned during this pandemic, but which ones will shape and improve the library profession? How will the social artifacts of our current pandemic become embedded in our organizations, creating a "new normal" as well as pathways for new models of work? How have the information needs and behaviors of our user communities informed our libraries' adaptations during the pandemic, and how we will continue to meet their diverse needs in the long-term? The keynote speakers and panelists will share and discuss how libraries – particularly in the medical and health sciences fields – can leverage change to create more agile, informed, and impactful libraries and librarians and to forge a more exciting and advanced future for librarianship. Join us as we shape tomorrow's libraries.
