      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      This article focuses on the institutional response of the British Library to the Covid-19 pandemic over the course of the past year. National libraries have a key part to play as the world recovers, and the experiences of the British Library highlight the central role of digital in adapting to massive disruption, of the importance of institutional values in steering a course through a year of crisis, and the contribution that we can make to building national and international resilience against future shocks and turmoil.

      Authors: Leslie Weir
      First page: 90
      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      The new Librarian and Archivist of Canada shares experiences of leading Library and Archives Canada (LAC) during a period of transition with the change in leadership and two major construction projects including a new net carbon zero preservation centre and a joint facility with the Ottawa Public Library. This transition leads to the establishment of the two strategic priorities of service transformation and digital optimisation and the launch of a visioning exercise for LAC in 2030. The vision anticipates new audiences in light of the partnership with the public library and the development of new services and highlights the importance of a virtual presence for national libraries. The transition is interrupted by the arrival of Covid-19 6 months into the process and the future of the national libraries and their role must be reimagined post Covid.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      Covid-19 – or coronavirus disease forced libraries in Colombia to close the doors as well as forced them to strengthen or to create virtual and remote services. Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia (BNC) leads in Colombia the implementation of measures for the library sector during the current health crisis, providing guidelines and recommendations on how to deal with the emergency, as well as giving information resources, and alternatives on how to provide library services, to doing the paperwork, to implement the biosecurity protocols, and the definition of phases for reopening in the future. Also, BNC itself focused on the support BNC researchers throughout virtual services. This article was written during the first months of the health emergency, so that on the date of publication the situation may have changed.

  • Acting like a start-up: National Library of Estonia during Covid-19
           pandemic

      Authors: Janne Andresoo
      First page: 111
      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      Emergency situation was declared in Estonia in the middle of March; the country was placed under partial lockdown. Libraries had to close. One of the first steps taken by the National Library of Estonia in these exceptional circumstances was to establish a crisis management committee to monitor the overall situation and decide how the library should proceed. The library was able to react quickly and continue with basic services, providing them online or contact-free. New services were introduced, making home lending and reference enquiry more efficient and convenient. The library reopened on 18 May. Looking back, we are happy to have not just survived but managed the crisis as an opportunity. This was reflected in increased numbers of new registered readers and usage. The emergency situation clearly indicated one of the most important requirements for libraries – the need to be ready to react fast and adapt to new situations.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      Founded in 1892, the National Library of Israel (NLI) serves as the vibrant institution of national memory for the Jewish people worldwide and Israelis of all backgrounds and faiths. Its four core collections – Israel, Judaica, Islam and Middle East, and the Humanities – tell the historical, cultural and intellectual story of the Jewish people, the State of Israel and the Land of Israel and its region throughout the ages. The NLI’s current transformative renewal aims to encourage diverse audiences in Israel and across the globe to engage with these treasures in meaningful ways through a range of innovative educational, cultural and digital initiatives. The most tangible manifestation of this transformation is the new NLI campus, now under construction adjacent to the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) in Jerusalem, and on schedule to open its doors in 2022. NLI’s renewal and dual mandate requiring it to engage diverse domestic and international audiences, as well as the massive construction project underway, have in many ways magnified the challenges posed by this difficult period, as well as – and perhaps even more so – the opportunities it presents. While the response to these unprecedented and unforeseen circumstances has largely been ad hoc, the NLI approach has been guided by the goal of protecting the health and welfare of its staff and users, and identifying strategic opportunities to not only make the most of the difficulties presented by this complex new reality but also build programs and initiatives to help achieve strategic goals. Following a brief summary of the crisis in Israel, this article presents a number of examples of the physical, logistical and programmatic adaptations NLI has implemented in attempting to maximise potential opportunities in best fulfilling its mission during this time.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      While Asian and European countries were grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic, the first imported case from the United Kingdom surfaced in Jamaica on 10 March 2020. The article will trace the steps taken by the National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) before and during the pandemic while improving the value of our cultural heritage to Jamaica and the wider diaspora. The NLJ celebrated 40 years of sterling contribution to the development of Jamaica from March 1979 to April 2020. It has been a leading voice in the region in disaster management and preparedness. Through its Preservation and Conservation Branch, and oversight from the Disaster Preparedness Committee, the NLJ has become a training ground for professionals in the information and conservation field. While highlighting the work of the NLJ, the article will also present statements and surveys conducted on regional and international bodies. These organisations include the Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL), the Community of Directors of National Libraries (a subgroup of the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) and the Society of American Archivists. The surveys conducted gleaned a greater appreciation of the impact of Covid-19 on libraries and archives regionally and internationally. The article will address other pandemic crises that have affected Jamaica. It will also demonstrate that being proactive and prepared for viral episodes can mitigate the risks. The NLJ used the opportunity to facilitate service delivery while being socially distant from its patrons.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      The National Library of Latvia had to close for two and a half months when emergency situation was declared in Latvia. The library took proactive steps to protect its staff and ensure continuous on-line services to readers, as well as prepared re-opening plan with physical service transformation according to existing health and safety protocols. The National Library of Latvia engaged in different initiatives to diversify its products and services, including contribution of library data centre processing power to crowdsourcing initiative battling Covid-19. Library major achievement was to receive the license from the state copyright agency that allowed public access to copyright protected collections of books and periodicals from the Latvian National Digital Library throughout the entire Covid-19 crisis. Unlimited access to library digital collections was significant contribution in supporting general public, students and researchers during homestay period. The library re-opened in late May adapting to new normal and has strong future vision of improving information and communication technologies (ICT) of state cultural sector and implementing several international projects.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      We live in a constantly transforming society, and, therefore, the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania, which celebrated its centenary last year, is also constantly transforming. By adapting to constant change, we continue our core mission, which in today’s digital age is to preserve and manage what has been created in this country over the centuries. We are actively developing a unique library model, live library. In other words, it is the living space of living people. Our field of activity is very wide. We are not only the custodians of the national documentary treasure but also a cultural institution, open to all, a scientific library and a parliamentary library that cultivates community, public spirit and democracy. Never before has the National Library been as popular, needed and even as fashionable as it is today. We work to meet the professional, intellectual and spiritual needs of today’s people, whether they are library visitors, readers, employees, partners or just those who want to improve themselves.

      This article deals with the way in which, because of the pandemic caused by COVID-19, the National Library of Peru found ways to continue creating spaces, physical, virtual or remote, of access to information and culture. The article understands this right as a fundamental right of people, which must not be diminished and which, on the contrary, must be promoted even in times of emergency or pandemic.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      Pandemics are nothing new to libraries. Our collections contain many works on epidemics and pestilence through the centuries. The Covid-19 pandemic forced the National Library of Scotland to deal with a public health crisis that went beyond the experience and policies of the institution. This account describes the measures taken to close the Library rapidly and to set up a staff of over 300 to homeworking. It is then explained how the Library continued working under lockdown and provided a digital service to the public. In the final section, the Library’s approach to reoccupying the buildings and resuming public services is discussed, emphasising the complex administrative and human issues involved. Finally, a short assessment of the ‘new normal’ for the National Library is posited.

      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      The National Library of South Africa (NLSA) like many libraries and institutions has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, its approach has been that of deciding to embrace the change, adapting to an approach of working with stakeholders and focusing on how the future can best be forecasted so that the work done now can have a greater impact. The NLSA shares its experiences, learnings and approaches for this new normal and hopes this sheds light on how national, and all, libraries can adopt a culture of continuous growing and adapting whether in a pandemic or not.

      Two days after the Swiss National Library’s anniversary exhibition opened, it was forced to close down again because of the coronavirus. Thereafter, the focus switched to communicating content prepared for the exhibition via the National Library’s own website and other external websites. Meanwhile, the book 125 Years of the Swiss National Library proved ideally suited to continuing the anniversary celebrations despite the omnipresent virus.

           COVID-19 experience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Margaret Allen
      First page: 224
      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      The State Library of Western Australia was forced to close to the public under a declared State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the 56 days of full closure, the Library quickly adapted services to meet restrictions, collected COVID-19 related material, transitioned some staff to working from home and undertook collection-related projects and minor refurbishment works. The Library had maintained a current pandemic plan, but significant decisions about service closure, risks and responses and strategic human resource considerations were made at the highest levels of government. Although not considered essential services enabling them to remain open to the community, the State Library and public libraries in Western Australia were among the first services to reopen within strict protocols under a staged lifting of restrictions. Social media was an essential tool in staying connected with the community, providing advice about service changes, delivering online services and engaging the community to secure donations of COVID-19-related material for the Library’s collections. Difficulties in collecting material efficiently and quickly about the Western Australian experience of an event of global significance were highlighted. Transitioning some staff to working from home arrangements presented policy and technology challenges and highlighted a digital divide for Library staff including their lack of access to appropriate technology at home.Although the pandemic is ongoing and uncertainty still exists, the COVID-19 experience is informing collection development policy, digital service delivery direction, human resource policies and advocacy.

      During the COVID-19 period, Swedish public libraries have gone through five phases, which diverge, noticeably from many other European countries. During the first phase of the pandemic, most public libraries stayed open. The week before Christmas 2020 most public libraries where temporally closed. The roll of public libraries in the local community was under debate, could the local community do without libraries'

      Authors: Nick Poole
      First page: 264
      Abstract: Alexandria, Ahead of Print.
      Covid-19 has impacted on every aspect of daily life across the United Kingdom. At once both a public health crisis and an ‘infodemic’ of misinformation, it has presented unique challenges for library and information services. Yet despite these challenges, the pandemic has also given our services a new-found relevance. Readership has increased dramatically. Librarians in health have turned their skills to the search for an effective vaccine. Our colleagues in schools, colleges and Universities have stepped up to help their institutions achieve a rapid ‘digital pivot’. In the private sector, librarians and information professionals have used their skills to help their companies go online and to ensure the continuity of their activities. It is not yet clear how the pandemic will change our habits, attitudes and behaviours in the long term. As we begin to look ahead to a future in which ‘digital’ has taken its place on equal terms with face-to-face services, the library and information sector is uniquely positioned to help our communities thrive in a post-pandemic era. In this article, Nick Poole, the Chief Executive of CILIP, the United Kingdom’s Library and Information Association, looks back at the last year for UK libraries and explores the challenges and opportunities ahead.
