Editorial: The Post-Pandemic Library Era

By Dr. Sadie-Jane Nunis, Editor

Dear Readers

Hope everyone is healthy and safe.

It has been quite the ride since COVID-19 hit us like a hurricane, hasn’t it?

In this journal issue, we have various contributors who openly share how they tackled the urgent needs of their patrons while still juggling their staff’s capabilities, training needs, and even mental health to a certain extent.

On behalf of the team, we would like to thank the contributors from both Singapore and Malaysia for their submissions and we hope that you, the reader, pick up on the various helpful and innovative ideas that are shared in their papers.

Until next year’s issue.

Season’s greetings and hope 2023 is a good one for us all.
