Dear CEAL colleagues:
This is a follow-up message regarding my earlier posting on the Joint Statement via Eastlib: Equity and Access in Higher Education and Academic Libraries amid the COVID-19 Pandemic (dated July 31, 2020).
A total of 283 library professionals signed the statement in the past two weeks.
For your information, I am sharing some next steps for the joint statement task force to follow up:
- The joint statement will be published in various area studies library associations’ websites.
- The joint statement will be shared with ARL, CRL and HathiTrust.
- The joint statement task force will be working on meetings with the administrators/the board members of ARL, CRL and HathiTrust.
Please share and distribute this joint statement widely.
President, Council on East Asian Libraries (CEAL)
