This is the letter from the DLC Chair that accompanied and formally delivered the report, Depository Libraries in a Time of Stay-at-Home Orders ― Report of Depository Library Council’s Open Forum, April 22, 2020, to GPO’s Director.
As the spring 2020 DLC Virtual Meeting neared, we were in the midst of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Council wanted to hear from the depository library community and provide an opportunity for them to share their stories of how they were working, facing challenges, and coping during this incomparable time. In an hour long Open Forum, the depository community willingly spoke up to address the five questions that were posed to them.
