ASERL Friends:

In case you had not seen, the first results from the IMLS-funded study of the 
viability of coronavirus on library materials has been posted.  The short 
version:

  *   After one day the virus was undetectable on hardback (buckram cloth) 
covers, softback covers, and plastic DVD cases.
  *   It took three days for the virus to become undetectable on the paper 
inside of a book and mylar book jackets.

See

 for the full announcement.

Project updates are posted at oc.lc/realm-project<https://oc.lc/realm-project> 
as they become available. Those interested can also sign up through the project 
website to receive timely email updates when new information is released.
