Format: Webinar, original date August 4, 2020
Hosted by: OCLC, IMLS and Battelle
Length: 1 hour 30 minutes
As libraries and museums around the country begin to resume operations and reopen to the public, the need for clear information to support the handling of core museum, library, and archival materials has become increasingly urgent. Through the REopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums (REALM) Project, OCLC, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and Battelle are conducting research on how long the COVID-19 virus survives on materials that are prevalent in libraries, archives, and museums. Join us to learn more about the testing process, how to present results to your stakeholders, project resources to inform your local decisions, and what you can expect from the project in the months to come.
Presented by: Sharon Streams, Kendra Morgan, Marvin D. Carr, Thomas Mera, and Will Richter
