The UAB Libraries Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force recently sat down with Mr. Hugh R. Hardy, Jr., in an interview to share his perspective on COVID-19.

Hugh Hardy 300x400Many individuals have been challenged by various aspects of life during the pandemic, including Mr. Hardy. In March 2020, his first grandson was born, but neither he nor his family were able to be around the baby and really get to know him. Upon his return back to the library after working from home for an extended period of time, brand new protocols were put in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. A little-known fact about Mr. Hardy is that he is a published author and plans to incorporate the pandemic into one of his upcoming books. Hugh has worked evenings in the User Access Department of Mervyn H. Sterne Library since October 2011.
