“When things return to normal...”: Discerning the post-pandemic future of academic libraries

June 14, 2021

Academic Libraries, along with academia as a whole, faced unprecedented challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Library staff at all levels invested time, energy, and funding to re-imagine critical services, resource access, and other functions in support of our educational missions. The large-scale deployment of vaccines and the summer months ahead have prompted many institutions to declare a return to a normal or near-normal semester in Fall 2021. As leaders, we look to the future and wonder what “returning to normal” will look like. How do we plan for the next academic year given the unprecedented change and unknown future?
