Southworth Library Director Sara Kelley-Mudie recently co-presented a webinar sponsored by the Independent School Section (ISS) of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL).
The webinar, entitled "The 'What If?' Scenario: What Your Library Needs to Run Without You," was based on a presentation Mudie and two colleagues — Laura Pearle, director of Cox Library at Milton Academy; and Courtney Lewis, director of Library Services and Innovative Research at St. Catherine's School in Richmond, Virginia — made a few years ago at an American Library Association (ALA) conference.
The session presented "the documents, systems, and fail-safes every librarian needs to have in place for someone else to step in and do their job to keep the library running."
Organizers noted the webinar's particular relevance during the pandemic.
