The pandemic has brought many challenges and triumphs to the way students conduct research. Remote learning has forced students to engage in more self-exploratory learning, but reduced contact with professors has also been a challenge for students who may need more guidance and support.

Technological challenges were present for virtually everyone affected by the pandemic as the workplace, educational space and healthcare space shifted to the home space. Although this shift has presented its share of challenges, it has also given children and adults an opportunity to see classmates, professors and colleagues in a way we never have before. As pets and running children make appearances in online interactions, we find ourselves interacting on another level.

The pandemic has also increased the need for particular collections of e-books for all types of organizations, including K-12 schools, military libraries, corporations and healthcare systems. Social justice issues have forced us to take a hard look at ourselves and our culture and initiate changes in our own understanding and behavior to make this world more inclusive and diverse. New career paths for students are becoming more popular with the increase of online activities, with subjects like video game design becoming a highly requested collection from academic libraries.

The EBSCO team of librarians consistently offer new and updated e-book and audiobook collections on the subjects that readers need and want right now.
