We've been "Safer at Home" since March - how have special libraries continued to fulfill their missions? And what's next for providing service while also providing a safe work environment? What does "reopening" look like - on the ground - and what might it take to get there? In this event, we'll hear perspectives from three local librarians on how their special libraries are coping 6 months into a pandemic, and strategies they're using to address the many difficult questions we're all grappling to answer.
