    DUBLIN, Ohio, 31 March 2020—OCLC’s COVID-19 page brings together timely information, valuable resources, and opportunities for online discussion and instruction to help library professionals continue to serve their communities during the pandemic.

    The COVID-19 resource page http://oc.lc/covid19-service-info offers options to provide remote access to library collections, optimize OCLC products and services, and connect and collaborate with other libraries.

    “These are unprecedented times for all of us. Libraries globally are navigating in a new and uncertain environment.

And OCLC is committed to serving libraries everywhere by providing resources and expertise to help,” said Skip Prichard, OCLC President and CEO.

    Resources available on the page include:

    • Information to guide library professionals through options available to modify OCLC services if necessary.

    • A growing list of freely available content, including recommended options to access this content through OCLC services, made accessible by OCLC partners.

    • A COVID-19 Discussion Board available on the OCLC Community Center to help OCLC customers share information, ideas, and best practices about how they are responding to the pandemic.

    • An evolving list of resources from WebJunction, including examples of how libraries are managing the COVID-19 crisis, links to other library-specific resource compilations, and relevant events.

    Visit the COVID-19 resource page at http://oc.lc/covid19-service-info for updates and additional information.
