    Hi all:

     

      Is ALA and/or any of the divisions working on a response to the Coronavirus pandemic? For me, more specifically, about the practice of academic libraries remaining open to patrons when classes have moved to the online environment.  This  practice seems counter to the purpose of "social distancing" in moving classes online to try to stem the tide of this disease.  I know there are no easy answers to this but it would be helpful for a response from ALA.

     

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Susan Jennings
