OhioLINK Webinars


  • OhioLINK Webinar: Print Services During COVID-19 (5/6/2020) - Library services for print resources have changed dramatically over the past several weeks as institutions have moved to distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. From staff working remotely, to changes in ILL fulfillment processes to modified loan periods and increased renewals, there are many strategies that libraries have employed to continue to support students through the Spring semester. In this webinar we hear from librarians at Miami University, University of Dayton, University of Findlay, and Xavier University about print services at their libraries, followed by time for a broader Q&A and conversation on print services going into the Summer semester.
