Description: Three librarians active in state, regional, and national initiatives, will discuss roles librarians in all types of settings can take on during public health emergencies such as the current coronavirus outbreak. Not only do librarians support their specific patrons, they also serve a larger public community. The unique combination of research and evaluation skills is essential in times when myths and misinformation fuel fear around these types of events. Credible resources, ways to partner with internal and external agencies, and ideas on how to add value to your institution will all be covered in this one-hour webinar.
