First Report of the Depository Library Council’s Working Group on the Long-Term Impacts of COVID-19 on Federal Depository Library Access, Collections, and Services (October 13, 2023)

The Working Group is tasked with assessing the immediate and long-term impact of COVID-19 mitigation policies and procedures in Federal depository libraries. This first report is based on the responses to Question 6 of the 2021 Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries: In which areas, if any, has your institution implemented new library0wide policies and/or procedural changes as a result of COVID-19. The responses provided both quantitative and qualitative data for analysis.
