In March 2020 CLIR started the COVID (Re)Collections blog series to help people in the information field process COVID-19 and share their responses as the situation evolved. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a global pandemic, CLIR would like to offer a platform where practitioners can reflect on how the field has changed over the past year, grieve for all we’ve lost, and look ahead.
- In what ways has COVID-19 changed the way you work? How has it changed how you think about information? What changes to the field or your practice are likely to endure beyond the pandemic?
- What is the relationship between your professional and personal experience? How did other events in 2020 and early 2021 affect how you approached and experienced the first year of COVID-19?
- What are some ways people in the information field have cared for their colleagues, their communities, and themselves? Where was more care needed?
- What should the field be doing moving forward to build resilience and support our communities?
