Description

One of the challenges Oregon State University Libraries staff faced when the university decided to re-open the Corvallis campus was determining how to resume services in the Valley Library building in the safest and healthiest way possible. A big question was how to control building access while keeping patrons and staff safe. The answer was opening “by appointment only” with LibCal Seats as our reservation system. In this presentation, we’ll talk about the challenges and the successes of quickly adopting technology that supports both public health and library user needs.
