During the pandemic, many individuals were sent home by their employers to telework to protect their health and safety. For most, this was a new experience, one that required adjustments and that offered both benefits and drawbacks. The items in the Teleworking collection of the JOTPY archive provide insight into many aspects of the teleworking experience, both positive and negative.
The Teleworking exhibit highlights stories, images, and news articles related to the world of teleworking during the COVID-19 pandemic. The materials presented in this exhibit are both serious and humorous, reflecting the varied experiences and attitudes of teleworkers. The exhibit items touch upon the pros and cons of teleworking, the value of animal companions for teleworkers, the challenges of parenting while teleworking, and the world of Zoom meetings.
