Alma at Mary Immaculate College
(Limerick, Ireland)

Watch this video and find out how the library team at Mary Immaculate College were able to introduce new patron services and to unlock the potential of their library – all while working from home!

Small doesn’t have to mean alone

The COVID-19 pandemic led to widespread lockdowns that hit libraries around the world hard. For some time yet students and faculty face a lot of rules and restrictions to gather in classrooms, laboratories, or libraries which causes major disruption to teaching, learning, and research, as well as to library services and to collection management. As a direct consequence libraries see an increased demand for electronic resources and the demand to serve patrons remotely – around the clock.

How do you fulfil the numerous requests from teaching, learning, and research while undertaking the critical thinking so essential to our future? How do you respond to the ever increasing workload? How do you cope with so many routine tasks that are often very time-consuming?

Discover why Alma is the right choice for your library by learning how Mary Immaculate College reduced the time spent on repetitive and unnecessary tasks and enabled themselves to be service-oriented and to work with their patrons to get them the right materials – all while working remotely.
