Even before librarians closed their doors against the pandemic, they started moving fast to keep their work going. They began shifting regular programming online; distributing stockpiles of mobile technology to the digitally needy; strengthening partnerships with schools and food donation sites; activating their maker-technology to produce PPE; helping prepare the homeless population with alternatives for shelter; and more.
Books, Bytes & Beyond is a monthly showcase of new and noteworthy print and non-print releases, including books, periodicals, audio- and e-books, online resources, and video, for acquisitions and collection development librarians.
