REopening Archives, Libraries and Museums (REALM): Caring for Your Resources During COVID-19

Amid COVID-19, many archives, libraries and museums are reopening and expanding access to services in their communities. The challenges of reopening during a pandemic have led to many questions about policies for staff, the handling of materials as well as the management of building operations. From allowing the virus to die naturally, to using disinfectants, to applying UV light or heat treatment—there are many options to consider. This webinar features members of the REopening Archives, Libraries and Museums (REALM) project team who will share information about the project, including freely available resources to support local decision-making.

The webinar will take place on Zoom and captions will be available for those who choose to use them. The webinar will be recorded and the recording will be available to view after the event is complete.
