(29 Nov 2020) As the incidence of coronavirus is increasingly rising globally, affected countries are taking various preventive steps, including travel bans, remote office operations, country lockdown, and social distancing. We all know that necessity is the mother of invention and we have been realizing it during the pandemic situation. Access to information is the paramount tool for ensuring the quality of education. However, the information should be authentic when we will use it during this pandemic condition. Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals in Bangladesh have been providing authentic information and innovative services to their patrons as fast as possible. Innovation and adaptability are very significant in this sudden change and LIS professionals, library associations, public libraries, academic libraries and school libraries have taken different activities to address this situation.
