Learn how Emory Libraries found creative solutions during the pandemic

Emory Libraries’ TechLab used 3-D printers to create face shields for health care workers.

When the coronavirus pandemic forced Emory University to close its physical campuses and move all classes online for several months, Emory Libraries quickly found ways to continue providing resources and services to students, faculty and staff. 

In addition to converting in-person services, events and exhibits to a virtual environment, library departments helped scholars maintain mission-critical research, captured video stories of life during the pandemic, addressed social justice issues and created PPE for health care workers.

Learn how they did it by joining “Crisis and Creativity: Stories of Ingenuity from the Emory Libraries” on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 12 p.m. Grab your lunch while you hear stories that demonstrate the strength of the Emory library community, which responded to adversity in novel and inspiring ways.
