Remote Learning and Working

Remote Learning & Working

Resources and tips for working, programming, teaching, and learning from home during COVID-19 and beyond.

 

CLC is working with vendors and researching ways to help our member libraries serve their users during these unprecedented days of quarantine and social distancing. On this page, you will find a variety of resources to help you with distance working and learning - whether you are an educator conducting distance learning, a children's librarian offering online storytime, a manager or administrator working on getting staff and students connected, or a library staff member experiencing your first meetings via video, we want to help.

 

This page will be updated regularly. Send suggestions for additional resources to clc@ctlibrarians.org.
