The UR Blog is marking the pandemic year with a series of highlights across the University to showcase how the mission continued during a year of crises and challenges.
The U of M Libraries featured their staff members and operations managers, recalling the new approaches that stemmed from the pandemic and also the added stress brought on by the virus itself.
“COVID I think it has been really hard,” Reimer says. “It has clearly changed people’s lives in a really profound way. Being on site has been hard in a lot of ways for staff. I want to recognize people’s commitment to the Libraries for continuing to work on site when maybe they would have preferred to stay home.” The staff has been tremendous, she says.
