On March 11, we designed, tested, and deployed the “Academic Library Response to COVID19” survey with real-time reporting. This session will share both the ongoing findings from the survey (which gathered information on campus courses, residential status, and a range of issues for academic libraries). More than 800 academic libraries in the United States have reported in on the survey and more than 250 have submitted updates. Real-time reports and dashboards, visualizations, and analyses (24 hour, 48 hour, and 10 day) have proved very useful to the field in this time of rapid change and decision making. In addition, the presenters will share what it meant to field a survey when speed was of the essence.
