The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound effect on Whittier College and the Wardman Library. The Library began the academic year by introducing a number of new initiatives including instructional programming to provide targeted workshops on library research and resources, a revamped Faculty Alcove with spaces for instruction and collaboration, new furniture, and new databases to meet the needs of our students and faculty. With the move to remote learning, the Library met the challenge and shifted its services to handle the immediate needs of our students and faculty. This report illustrates the impact of the Library upon the Whittier College community.
