Academic Law Libraries COVID-19 Survey

NELLCO has conducted two Academic Law Libraries COVID-19 Response Surveys. The results of the two surveys can be viewed by clicking on the images below. Both surveys were sent to all academic law libraries in the United States through the ALL-SIS and NELLCO list-servs. NELLCO membership was not a requirement to complete the surveys or receive the results. Additional information on each survey is listed below.

The August survey was sent on July 31, 2020 and remained open until August 7, 2020. This 27-item survey focused on the law schools’ course format and law libraries’ plans for their services, collections, and staff, as well as health and safety protocols for the fall 2020 semester. A total of 70 academic law libraries answered at least one question on the survey. Of the 70 participants who started the survey, 63 (89%) completed the survey. 

The initial survey, now referred to as the May Survey, was sent out on May 4, 2020 and remained open until May 8, 2020. The 23-item survey asked libraries about the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the libraries and library staff and what ideas are being considered as libraries plan to reopen. A total of 122 academic law libraries (61%) answered at least one question on the survey. Of the 122 participants who started the survey, 100 (82%) completed the survey.
