Hello Medlibbers,

I can't believe its been a month since Library Staff were classified as
non-essential (non-working.)    I first want to offer thanks and
appreciation again all of people here who have been so helpful to me when I
reached out for help with ref questions or needed additional resources  -
you know who you are!!!

With financial loses growing with the lack of elective surgery, etc.,  our
health system has decided on a plan of furloughing employees and
other methods to help cope with the financial losses until we are allowed
to do selective surgery again.  Last Friday,  I was called by my VP and
told I could come back PT (3 days a week to re-open Library Services.  I
will now be covering both campuses.  Unfortunately, the rest of my staff
will be furloughed until August 13 along with many other staff.  I'm
happy I am returning to work  but iit is  with a very bittersweet feeling
knowing so many other people are now being furloughed.  i am looking
forward to building upi library services back up again   So any ideas you
have or have implemented would be appreciated.  Please contact me

If you have removed us from  your cells, please add us back.  I will be
filling the days I am here. I will update Docline with new information.
