Join President Julius C. Jefferson, Jr for the October ALA Connect Live program focused on the COVID-19 Research Project conducted by OCLC, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and Battelle. The REALM Project (REopening Archives, Libraries and Museums) is conducting research on how long the COVID-19 virus survives on materials that are prevalent in libraries, archives, and museums and is currently in phase 5 of their testing. The project will draw upon the research to produce authoritative, science-based information on how—or if— materials can be handled to mitigate exposure to staff and visitors. Join us to hear from R. Crosby Kemper III, Director, IMLS and Sharon Streams Director, WebJunction from OCLC about this research.
Please submit your questions in advance on any topic of interest to you.
