Dayrit Lecture Series this year entitled "Leading the Libraries in Times of Crisis: Transforming Challenges to Opportunities on June 24, 2020, 10:00-11:30 A.M.

Over the past several months, our country has witnessed unprecedented tragedies owing to natural and human causes. The most recent one is the COVID-19 Pandemic. These disasters have had a far-reaching impact on our global and local libraries and information centers.


This webinar will attempt to examine the different crises and their impact. Participants will learn from the current practices of librarians and administrators in managing their libraries to cope with the prevailing challenges. From this, you will gain insight on the qualities and roles of leaders who developed measures to accommodate their constituents' information needs during this time.

Join us and learn from our panel, who will consist of three leaders in the field of librarianship, as they share how they were able to transform their challenges into opportunities amid natural disasters and economic, political, technological, and health crises.
