The webinar on 'Academic Library Services during COVID-19' in July attracted over 200 participants from around the world with ten presenters, and the webinar “Decolonization in education: role of the academic library” and “ARL Hot Topics” were both presented as webinars including the planned speakers from WLIC 2020.
