Thinking of Your Team and How We Can Help
| By Paul Gazzolo, SVP, General Manager, Gale, a Cengage company |
Today, I am writing to you on both a personal and professional level. Like many of you, I am trying to balance the safety and welfare of my own family, our Gale team and their families, and you—our customers and stakeholders–all on shifting ground.
“We’re having to make some of the most important decisions that we have ever faced much faster than we ever anticipated.” This quote from a Library Director in Colorado really captures the nature of the unprecedented challenges facing librarians and educators today, and why as your partner, we want to help.
To support librarians and educators as they navigate a rapid shift to virtual learning and across many communities, the physical closure of libraries, we have launched a COVID-19 resource center. Though this online hub is quickly evolving, you can immediately start using and sharing, for free:
- Interdisciplinary, curriculum-aligned resources to support online learning from pre-K through undergraduate
- Live and on-demand training materials to help you optimize your existing resources
- Professional development eBooks to help transition to and strengthen virtual learning
- Authoritative Gale resources on health-related topics and global issues
This is a difficult and uncertain time, but we’re in it together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or my teammates with questions, or let us know what more we can do to help.
Stay safe – and know we’re with you every step of the way.
