As we are discussing this, how many of us have already made travel arrangements?

All—There are definitely discussions here at the Library in re planning for coronavirus. But no events have been canceled as of now.
I would be happy to have a virtual Idea Exchange meeting, if the majority think it best. Perhaps, now that we are meeting virtually every other month anyway, we don’t really need to have the “big” meeting.
I know nothing beats face-to-face communication, but in the current environment, perhaps virtual is better (and certainly a lot less expensive!). Would someone be willing to set up a poll for this?
Thanks Sharon. I’m still taking the temperature on events in CA and we’re having lots of internal discussions. We all need to have frequent check ins to see what develops.

Dear Guy and All,
I am not writing in alarm but I wanted to note that we are starting to see a ripple of cancelled and postponed conferences/meetings/travel owing to fears that the spread of coronavirus will begin to tax and strain our healthcare system..
Is there any discussion at LOC about possible restrictions on the horizon that will negatively impact our meeting? Is this something we need to consider?
thanks for any insights here,

Guy, Is it possible for us to get some more information about the financial support to attend? I just need an email or something in writing that says how much will be available.
Forgive me if this has already been send and I missed it.

I know last year you provided an online option for the meeting, will that be available this year too?

All—in case you need some sort of “official” invite for the May 6 Idea Exchange to justify your attendance, here it is.
