To our GMR Community Members
17 March 2020
As we all adjust to the changes that the coronavirus pandemic is bringing to our work and personal lives, I want to update you on some of the changes that will take place in our office.
GMR staff will be working from home. As a result, NNLM Reading and Membership kits, along with orders for other informational materials will not be filled. In addition, you may find that our response times are slightly delayed or that one of our human or fur children appear audibly or visibly on our calls or meetings.
We will continue to work with our partners across the Network of the National Library of Medicine to offer a range of scheduled webinars, online courses and self-paced courses. In addition, our archive of recorded trainings are always available on YouTube.
We encourage you to follow and share the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to keep yourself and others informed and healthy!
