The Forum for Classics, Libraries, and Scholarly Communications (FCLSC) post the recording of a discussion (Jan. , 2021) with Barbara Rockenbach (Yale) and Simon Neame (UMass, Amherst) about “The New Normal for Academic Libraries in a Post-Pandemic World”
The Forum for Classics, Libraries, and Scholarly Communications, an affiliated interest group of the Society for Classical Studies convened its annual meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 5 virtually via zoom as part of the 152nd Annual Meeting of the SCS, held jointly with the Archaeological Institute of America.
The meeting was the first to be held virtually for the FCLSC and was the one of the best attended on record, as many participants were able to attend who would not have made the trip to Chicago, the location for the meeting before the SCS and AIA made the decision in June 2020 not to hold a physical convention. Nearly 70 members attended the business meeting in the first hour and over 150 people attended the second hour, a discussion between Barbara Rockenbach, Stephen F. Gates ’68 University Librarian at Yale University, and Simon Neame, Dean of Libraries at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, about the future of academic and research libraries in the wake of the pandemic experience.
The FCLSC is now making a recording of this discussion, The New Normal for Academic Libraries in a Post-Pandemic World, available via NYU Stream (https://stream.nyu.edu/media/1_npqwq54w) and to the general public on Youtube (https://youtu.be/OkPuAhR3OgY). The recording has been captioned and is published with the express consent of all speakers and the FCLSC.
