Law Librarians Monitoring Legal Responses to COVID-19 in Latin America and the Caribbean

 Happy holidays everyone. I wanted to take this opportunity to share with all

of you our project called Law Librarians Monitoring COVID-19 in Latin America
and the Caribbean. Our project began back in March 2020 and we initially
produced 7 biweekly interviews covering subsections of the region as well as
identifying top sources for these countries. Since July, librarians from all
parts of the Americas (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Paraguay,
Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique, Canada, etc.) have produced reports in
specific situations in these countries. So far we have 22 reports and I’m
thrilled to inform you that we are expecting to have a total of 40 reports by
March 2021, including reports on how the situation looks like from the US,
Canada and international organizations in the region.

Recently, HeinOnline chose our project to be one of their librarian-curated
additional resources part of their newly released COVID-19 Database. Once you
click on additional resources, you have to select the Librarian-Curated tab
and you will see our project listed there: We have also
published and presented and will continue to do so in the coming year.

Please use, share and keep in mind our project, if it helps in any way.
