NISO Fall Assessment Training Series, Session Two, Managing the crisis or leading out of the crisis? 9.25.20

The COVID-19 pandemic, the radical shift in higher education to remote teaching and learning and the awakening of a country to social injustices to BIPOCs creates a watershed moment for libraries to assess and position themselves as strategic institutions to evolve for today and plan for future change on their campuses. What are the opportunities for transformation, where are we succeeding? This presentation shares feedback from the ARL/CNI workshop “Research Libraries as Catalytic Leaders in a Society in Constant Flux."
