With remote and hybrid teaching and the need to reclaim library space, access to digital content continues to be more urgent and essential than ever. Faculty are increasingly relying on electronic versions of historical and current periodicals and newspapers along with ebooks, streaming video, digital music scores and course reserves to enhance learning and support research.

Jesse Silva, Scholarly Resources Strategy and Federal Government Information Librarian at University of California, Berkeley will speak about the unique process that was used to match newspapers in microform to e-versions, helping his library acquire more crucial e-resources on a limited budget. They also saved thousands of feet of shelf space to make room for social distancing.
