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 https://www.imls.gov/news/research-shows-virus-undetectable-five-highly-circulated-library-materials-after-three-days 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. --jeb John Burger, Executive Director Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) c/o Robert W.
