Amid all this disruption and uncertainty, the Lumen Learning Team stands ready to assist with any rapid transition institutions and educators may be making to online learning, in order to reduce risk and slow the pace of transmission.

Lumen courseware is designed to help at-risk students succeed in digital environments, and we want to make our learning tools and team readily available wherever we may be helpful. We’re taking the following steps to help institutions resolve problems and get students through this term successfully.

Live classes may shift to Lumen Waymaker or OHM courseware at no cost for the remainder of the term. For faculty members seeking a well-designed digital alternative or supplement to their current textbook, Lumen courseware may be a good fit. Course set-up is simple, and faculty can be ready to teach the same day they make the change. We also provide free services to support a successful transition. Learn More.
To support professional development, we’re introducing a series of short videos about effective digital teaching and learning using Lumen courseware. We’ll begin sharing them later this week on Lumen’s blog. Topics include:
Setting up your course in the LMS
Engaging students in virtual environments
Staying connected to students at a distance
Helping students become self-directed learners
And more!
Lumen’s outstanding Support Team is available to assist with any needs. Reach out with support needs and general questions, including help for instructional designers, LMS administrators and others working with faculty to switch modalities using our courseware. Send a message to or schedule an Office Hours appointment for live virtual support.

EBSCO (EIS)EBSCO, like many organizations, is paying close attention to the continuously evolving news regarding COVID-19, including recommendations from the CDC and WHO about traveling, social distancing and quarantines.
This message is specific to our subscription services (print journals & magazines, e-journals and e-packages). We have in place a contingency plan that allows us to continue subscription service operations in case our on-site operations are interrupted by government-mandated quarantines or COVID-19 outbreaks in our primary service location. However, we need your help to facilitate this plan.
Receiving and Sending Renewals, Invoices & Other Information to EBSCO

Should we need to close our main operations facility for an extended period of time, employees will be able to work remotely. Due to the increased possibility that we may have to engage our remote work plan, we are asking all of our customers to consider electronic means of communication and of receiving and submitting documents such as invoices and renewal lists. If you are already doing this – thank you! If not, please keep reading for the options available to you.

E-mail and phone communication for day-to-day concerns should not be interrupted. Our Customer Service Team is prepared to work remotely. EBSCO also offers the option of using our Customer Service Portal in EBSCONET, which allows you to communicate directly with your assigned EBSCO representative.

For subscription renewals, customers have the following options:

Work your renewal online via EBSCONET. Your account must be set up for this functionality, but we can set you up quickly upon request – just ask your Customer Service Representative.
Receive your renewal list in PDF/Excel format rather than paper. This can also be requested via your Customer Service Representative.

If you are not already receiving invoices via email for your EBSCO subscriptions, you can request this change via your Accounts Receivable Representative or your Customer Service Representative. In the event that EBSCO’s on-site subscription operations are interrupted, and EBSCO moves to a contingency plan, the delivery of paper invoices may be delayed or interrupted.

Hoopla (Midwest Tape)Many libraries are going to be closed to the public for at least two weeks. There is a chance this could extend well beyond two weeks. As libraries cope with supplying patrons with digital content, we approached Midwest Tape about arranging for temporary Hoopla contracts for libraries (particularly public libraries) who have never used Hoopla in the past but would like to divert financial resources to it while they are not making physical material purchases.

The Hoopla implementation/rollout period would also be expedited. The only downside here is that subscribing libraries would not receive a physical marketing kit to distribute to patrons at launch.

Contracts would be for 6 months instead of the customary 24, but libraries can cancel at any time with 60-days' notice.

Royal Society Publishing I hope you are safe and well. I would like to take the opportunity to share some relevant information on behalf of the publisher The Royal Society. Following the decision of the publisher to make our relevant COVID-19 content free to access, The Royal Society has now decided to remove all access controls on our journals for the time being. The publisher wants to support our librarian and researcher communities, and understands that people may be working remotely for some time. The Royal Society does not want access issues to impede any work for our end users during this time. As the paywall will be down this means that customers & non-customers will have access during this time: Slot SURFmarketWed 25 Mar 2020Lookup Specifics
