Abstract

The University of Southern Queensland's physical library collections were closed on 25 March 2020 to limit the spread of COVID-19. Under the direction of Carmel O'Sullivan, Director of Library Services, the Library clearly communicated to the USQ community the move to operating exclusively online whilst campus libraries were temporarily closed. An immediate and pressing challenge was to ensure that accessibility to textbooks was maintained over this time. There was a need to advocate for access and make informed decisions based on analytics and knowledge of licensing and copyright allowances.
