SCR CONNECTions: Public Libraries Respond to the Opioid Crisis with Their Community

Class Details

Presentation Title: Public Libraries Respond to the Opioid Crisis with Their Community


Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Ph.D., Director of Library Trends and User Research, OCLC Research, will share the findings of the project, Public Libraries Respond to the Opioid Crisis with Their Communities, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, in partnership with OCLC and the Public Library Association, a division of the American Library Association, to study how public librarians responded to the opioid crisis within their communities by partnering with other community agencies and services.

The nation is experiencing an ongoing opioid epidemic and communities across the country have been experiencing the epidemic’s impact. Eight case studies were conducted in different types of communities within the United States. Dr. Connaway will highlight the findings based on interviews with library staff, library board members, the staff at community partner organizations, and members of each of the eight communities. The resources and findings of this project will help public library staff and their community partners develop effective strategies to work together to address the opioid epidemic in America.
