    SLA NY & SLA Europe event: Recession and its impact on LIS 

    When:  Friday March 19, 2021 from 1PM-1:45 PM (ET)/6PM-6:45PM (GMT)


    What does the 2008 Great Recession and its impact on LIS tell us about the Global Pandemic & Crisis' impact on Librarianship today


    Join SLA NY & SLA Europe members in an informal discussion, starting with a review of LIS articles on the impact of past recessions on librarianship:

    A Look at Recessions and their Impact on Librarianship

    By Hilary Davis (January 2009) 


    Early Effects of the Economic Downturn on Academic Libraries in the UK

    By Ray Harper and Sheila Corrall (Corrected final draft, December 2010)


    How have previous recessions directly impacted librarianship?  How did we in the profession fare during the Great Recession and how are things in the current Global Pandemic/Economic Crisis?  What is the impact on a librarian career that has these two events to contend with?  What future do we see?

    Please read the article prior to the event and then bring your thoughts and ideas to the discussion.


    Leading the discussion are Amy Stubbing, Ann Cullen, Tracy Maleeff, and Clara Cabrera.


    Organised by Clara Cabrera, Cathrine Hertz-Søndergård, and Amy Stubbing.
