I am curious as to what others are doing as well. Currently, we are updating an internal page with the opened content (some specific to our institution) for librarian outreach. If our initial remote work period continues, we will consider activating our content in our knowledgebase among other things. Looking forward to hearing from others.

Thank you,

Hi all,

I was curious to know what other libraries are doing to facilitate access to expanded/free access to online resources provided by vendors (which we very much appreciate!) during this crisis. Our OER librarian is putting a list together in a LibGuide and we are working to make that more prominent on our website. But this falls outside the ER ecosystem that our users access to get their online materials.

Is anyone activating or updating holdings in their knowledge base, databse listing, discovery tool or library catalog? We want to take advantage of the opportunities the vendors are providing to connect our users to these resources but a lot of our capacity at the moment is being focused on managing impacts to the physical library and workplaces as our university and library transitions to online-only.

Any examples, suggestions, etc., would be much appreciated. Thanks!
