For more than 60 years, the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries has brought together leaders from research, federal, and state libraries in the region to foster a high standard of library excellence through inter-institutional resource sharing and other important and innovative collaborations. Today, ASERL is among the largest regional research library consortia in the United States. By working together, ASERL members provide and maintain top quality resources and services for the students, faculty, and citizens of their respective communities.
ASERL & COVID-19
Due to health concerns and the changing operating status of our member campuses, the ASERL Board of Directors has asked our members to cease shipments of all physical materials between libraries until further notice.
- If your campus is closed/closing, please be sure to update your library’s status in OCLC Resource Sharing so e-requests can be routed appropriately. See OCLC’s Info-Sheet for more options.
- ExLibris has posted a summary of how libraries that do not currently participate in Rapid-ILL can join the “COVID-19 Pod.”
- Our colleagues at ARL have assembled useful resources for how their member libraries are responding to the COVID-19 crisis. See https://www.arl.org/resources/covid-19-resource-updates-pages/
