COVID-19 has presented a multitude of challenges for librarians, forcing us to completely rethink what it means to thoughtfully engage with our library users. This extends to the library classroom, which shifted dramatically for many when campuses around the country closed down and went virtual this past spring. This panel will highlight the experiences of teacher librarians who navigated the new virtual environment, as they share their thoughts, best practices, and lessons learned. Panelists will specifically address: working with non-art majors in the virtual classroom; shifting to a fully remote instructional delivery method due to COVID-19 without subscription services; engaging in mental flexibility through collaboration; and teaching with special collections in a remote model.
