    Colleagues,   Recent posts on various library/info sites and blogs concerning library materials, specifically those returned by patrons/customers currently holding borrowed materials.  This is important for employees handling returned materials, the various kinds of materials, and re-borrowing policies..

    Here is a possible resource:
    The Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has contracted with Battelle Labs to study COVID-19's viability on library materials.  Results are expected mid-June and will inform COVID-related policies for libraries and Info Centers..

    It seems that we are "on hold" for now. Stay tuned.
