Research Shows Virus Undetectable on Five Highly Circulated Library Materials After Three Days. Research Shows Virus Undetectable on Five Highly Circulated Library Materials After Three DaysFindings are Part of REALM Project to Produce Science-Based Information to Help Mitigate Exposure to Virus Washington, DC—In the first phase of a project to disseminate and develop science-based information about how materials can be handled to mitigate exposure to staff and visitors, scientists have found that the virus SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19 is not detectable on five common library materials after three days.
The findings are part of the REopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums (REALM) Project designed to generate scientific information to support the handling of core museum, library, and archival materials as these institutions begin to resume operations and reopen to the public. The first phase of the research is focusing on commonly found and frequently handled materials, especially in U.S. public libraries. Media Contacts: COVID-19 Guidance for School Libraries.

ALIA has created a strategic checklist which includes information on staff support, services that need to be phased in (or out), communications planning, and safety precautions. Every library will need to carry out its own risk assessment and establish operational guidelines, for example, about how to manage face-to-face inquiries when sharing a computer screen would breach the social distancing requirements. ALIA has also created a Guidance on record keeping for contact tracing during COVID-19, in response to member concerns around privacy and directives to collect personal information from library visitors.

Remote & Online Learning During the COVID-19 Outbreak. 17 March 2020 Introduction Unfortunately we all find ourselves in extraordinary times with the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia.
This has meant that a number of schools have had to close for periods of time and a number of students and their families have had to self-isolate. In light of the above, and the risk that more schools across the country will have to close in the near future, this information sheet provides guidance to schools as to how they can continue to teach their students remotely. While there is not a definitive answer to all scenarios that schools may be presented with during this time, we can provide some general guidelines and best practice approaches to managing copyright issues for distance learning, as well as some guidance on the most likely scenarios facing teachers in their need to supporting student learning at this time.
