Library Resource Sharing During and After Pandemic Conditions

The library community's response to the global pandemic of COVID-19 was necessarily swift; and, it is continually evolving, with many successes and many challenges. Stay at home orders, remote work, closed library stacks and limited access to print collections mean that interlibrary loan, document delivery and electronic reserves services are more essential than ever.  At the same time, policies and procedures have had to change in ways that are having clear short term and quite possibly long term effects on the work of libraries and library resource sharing. This issue of JILLDDER will highlight the experiences of library resource sharing specialists and the lessons we are learning about library information and resource sharing in 2020 that can help us navigate our current and future information landscape and support the information needs of current and future library users.

Potential topics include:

- Managing remote work
- Licensing
- International experiences
- Copyright and Fair Use
- Controlled digital lending
- E-book access
-Consortia projects
-OCLC response
-Open Access and OER
-Purchase on Demand
-Budget and staffing uncertainty
-Scanning and digitization
-Document delivery services
-Statistics and stories
-Value of library print collections
-Communicating with library users
-Electronic reserves
