the future of libraries in the digital age
A pandemic resource page for libraries is here. I'm not actively updating it, this forum is a better place to share information.
If we were to quickly do outreach for speakers for a public webinar on preparing for the (Wuhan) Coronavirus, are there individuals or groups you would suggest we contact?

@ALALibrary Pandemic Preparedness page last updated 2014 http://www.ala.org/tools/atoz/pandemic-preparedness but has tips on creating a library policy.— Valerie Hawkins (@librariesval) February 1, 2020
Current #flu AND #coronavirus #outbreak info available from @CDCemergency and @CDCFlu. Also see https://flu.gov and https://cdc.gov/coronavirus/
A webinar would be excellent. Someone from ALA would be great since they already have something in place. I'm checking with the Cleveland Clinic to see if someone there could be part of a panel.
That's great. There wasn't a contact name on the ALA stuff, so I'm reaching out to a couple of people I know there. Let me know if you have any luck.

Thanks for having a library conference on the current pandemic! I was wondering if you are sharing resources? The Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library has created a COVID-19 Research Guide that we would be grateful if you shared with other librarians.
Included in this research guide is a downloadable database of COVID-19 articles has been posted within the Library’s COVID-19 Research Guide. This database will be updated once a week by systematically searching various bibliographic databases and hand searching selected grey literature sources. Updates will be posted on Fridays.
The database can be downloaded as an Excel or RIS file. The database is searchable by author, keyword (in title, author, abstract, subject headings fields), journal, or abstract when available. DOI, PMID, and URL links are included when available. The search strategy also is included at the bottom of the page: https://www.cdc.gov/library/researchguides/2019novelcoronavirus/res...
All the best.
