The University of Johannesburg Library (UJ) in collaboration with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) are hosting a virtual conference, “From Zero To Hero: Rising to the challenges in a time of crisis”, on 14th & 15th September, 2020.
The disruption in the education sector by the COVID-19 pandemic led to the adoption of digital means to continue education. In a variety of ways, teachers, students and librarians have had to go from knowing zero or very little about something, to mastering new technologies, trends and techniques in teaching, research and information support to assist the digital initiatives of their institutions. Librarians have become heroes helping users as navigate their way in this new world. This conference is designed is to be a space where we can share our stories of difficulties, disruptions, failures and the challenges we have overcome, in order to support each other, and exchange ideas.
Our Chair, Dr. Budd Hall (University of Victoria), will be a speaker for the sub theme: Open Science-Beyond Open Access.
