Research Libraries, like other organizations, during COVID-19 pandemic have been facing hard choices concerning which services to offer, to minimize the risk to their staff, communities, and users. While the post COVID-19 era arrives, library leaders are urged to adapt flexible short term and long-term strategic plans that apply to every facet of library operations.
In the face of certain challenges and a still-uncertain set of risks, library leaders are rightly concerned about how their organizations will be affected and what they must do next. In the heat of the moment, there are several lessons that can be applied now to ensure our communities remain safe and resilient in the future.
This research is presenting Leadership skills and challenges regarding realigning library ambitions to the new operating environment and design the opportunity for leaders to how create clarity, diversity, strategic redundancy, innovation, build resilience, and lastly, catalyze positive new changes likely to occur in the post-COVID-19 recovery period.
