Remote Library of Congress – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

The last few weeks have brought about a lot of changes.

I am extremely proud of the team. We have been working remotely for three weeks, and our team continues to work to improve the website. We had a release last week and are wrapping up development for our next one.

Margaret continues to update the Coronavirus Resource Guide with new legislation and timely items published from the Law Library of Congress.

I find myself in an unfamiliar situation of teleworking. Our blog team met remotely this week. For the Pic of the Week, we often share pictures of libraries that we have visited or glimpses of views around the Library of Congress. Of course, travel is out of the question right now. Even being at the Library is not an option for most. So instead, how about photos of where we are now?  Here are a few photos of our remote workstations.

Although I don’t get to see my Library of Congress co-workers in person right now, I do have some great new co-workers sharing this space.

  1. Many thanks to all of you for continuing to work on our behalf. Your efforts are appreciated 🙂 Hopefully once we are out of the pandemic, the federal government will have seen the benefit of telework and enhance opportunities for staff to work remotely. Take care and stay well.

  2. Thanks for these great photos. And hello to Andrew’s hardworking co-workers!
