A Crash Course in Protecting Library Data While Working From Home From LITA: Libraries across the U.S. rapidly closed their doors to both public and staff in the last two weeks, leaving many staff to work from home. Several library workers might be working from home for the first time in their current positions, while many others were not fully prepared to switch over to remote work in a matter of days, or even hours, before the library closed. In the rush to migrate library workers to remote work and to migrate physical library programs and services to online, data privacy and security sometimes gets lost in the mix. Unfamiliar settings, new routines, and increased reliance on vendor technology all puts library data privacy at risk. Library Management

Get a 3D Printing Assignment I learned about this from Lyngsoe Systems, a library AMH vendor. They are printing a ventilator part on their 3D printer. They got the assignment from this website. The folks are coordinating with COVID-19 responders to help get the specific thing that is most needed at any given time. If you have a 3D printer and people available to make something, you might want to see if you can make something even more valuable than a face shield! Library Management
