of UNC Greensboro students and the development of the library profession, the UNCG library faculty and staff are experts in their respective areas of work. Each year, University Libraries’ faculty and staff produce numerous articles that are published in nationally-recognized journals, present at local, national and global conferences and serve as leaders of important professional organizations. This scholarly activity connects the library to the community at large, enabling University Libraries to bring information and attributes from such efforts back to UNCG and enrich the students’ educational experience. While these scholarly achievements are nothing short of amazing and represent a range of topics from Open Educational Resources (OERs) and open pedagogy to addressing online information literacy, University Libraries would like to take this opportunity to share its work with the broader community. The activity presented here was completed between November 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021, during the COVID pandemic and includes events that occurred virtually.
