Virtual Poster Session

It’s not news anymore…counting more than 2 months of a different, unpleasant reality for the whole World, it’s very clear our role, activities, plans, norms, standards have changed. Even postponed or cancelled. Has this marked the end of our contribution and support to research or is it just an abrupt shift to our identity and role?

Trying to put together the experience and strategic actions of academic libraries in Türkiye and worldwide, we decided to organize and host a virtual poster session as a freely accessible pool of evidence. Showcasing our “survival” skills under the current circumstances can help us engage with each other to share experience, difficulties, best solutions and unsuccessful attempts, upcoming plans and lessons learned.

Come join us and tell your story:

How are you surviving this case?  How do you reach out to your community? How do you support distance education in your Institution? How do you cope with access restrictions and well-established norms?

Posters can include:

  • Training & support to distance education
  • Access to resources
  • Services (e.g. document delivery)
  • Technical issues, difficulties and barriers
  • Work from home experience: how to keep yourself and your team well motivated
  • Any other activities / services implemented these days

The session will be divided into two main categories:

  • Global cases
  • The Turkish paradigm
