Auto-Graphics has sent us information on the National Emergency Library. If you think this will be helpful to your patrons you may want to link to it.

 

If you want the link to appear on your JerseyCat site, you can contact Auto-Graphics (as below).

 

My own feeling is that creating your own link on your library’s home page may be a better choice. Most users won’t be looking at JerseyCat as they are aware that Ill’s are not available. Linking to your library’s main page will ensure maximum visibility.

 

Here is the info. from AG:

The Internet Archive announced the opening of the National Emergency Library to assist with remote learning when schools and libraries are closed.

 

You can read more about it here:  http://blog.archive.org/2020/03/24/announcing-a-national-emergency-library-to-provide-digitized-books-to-students-and-the-public/

and here:  https://archive.org/details/nationalemergencylibrary  

 

If you’d like this made available to your libraries as a Link Page, please contact the Help Desk for assistance in getting it pushed out to them: 800-852-8686 or helpdesk@PROTECTED

 

This is how it would look as a Link page – clicking on “National Emergency Library” will take the user directly to the resource:

 

 

 

If you have any questions, please direct them to me at cconfoy@PROTECTED. Please don’t reply to the list.

 

Thanks and be well.
