Coronavirus Resources

March 6, 2020

Information about the coronavirus, or COVID-19, is being continually developed, updated, and shared. Libraries and library staff are urged to consult authoritative sources such as the CDC, the WHO, and the Illinois Department of Public Health. ILA has compiled a set of resources addressing general information as well as library-specific information.

As public spaces, libraries face a particular challenge when dealing with a public health challenge. ILA will keep our list updated and share news in the ILA Alert electronic newsletter. If you have a resource to suggest, or a question that you do not see answered, please email ILA Executive Director Diane Foote. Please note: We may not always have an answer, because this is a developing situation and everything about the novel coronavirus is not yet known, but we will do our best to find out.
