Week 2 on October 23rd will focus on issues of electronic access, patron services, and digitization workflows and will be directed mainly at front-line archives and special collections staff.

Week 3 on October 30th will focus on issues of staffing and costs and be directed mainly at administrators and finance staff.

Week 4 on November 6th will target scholars and other researchers and the challenges they face in obtaining remote access to collections.

After a week break for reflections and follow-up, the workshop series will conclude on November 20th with a facilitated plenary discussion of major themes and takeaways.
