While telecommuting has its challenges, we’ve learned to adjust and have made telecommuting a pretty successful work model for ourselves and for our patrons. While we aren’t able to provide the exact same level of service, we are actually able to accomplish quite a bit. All of our hard work over the years digitizing material and creating finding aids and inventories, has allowed us to continue providing reference assistance and reproduction services. Of course, there are some inquiries we are unable to assist with remotely, but we are committed to as soon as we are able to return to campus.
