In June 2020, members of the International Alliance of Research Library Associations (IARLA) convened a webinar, Recover, Retrench, Reset, which explored their collective experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Now nine months on, IARLA colleagues will come together, with members of the audience, to explore what some of the lasting legacies of the pandemic might be on the research library community. They will outline their own regional and national experiences and will explore how we might draw on our collective strength and experiences to foster new ways of working both within our institutions, between communities, and with one another.

In a series of Q&As, this session explores the experience of librarians at research institutions in the UK and US during 2020. Each of the speakers has an essential role to play in the provision of resources and support for research-led teaching and inquiry-based learning. We will hear how their work has transformed the experience of faculty and students at their institutions, and how they transformed their work in order to meet the demands of virtual delivery. In particular, the session reflects on the importance of digitised archival content for in-person and online instruction, and ask: how have libraries used access to Adam Matthew Digital collections to transform the learning experience of their patrons?
