Abstract: During the spring 2020 semester, The Claremont Colleges Library moved their popular May final exams week program online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The shift to an online program accommodated social distancing, supported student success, and promoted engagement between students and the library during a difficult time. This article is a case study authored by two of the librarians on the task force committed to organizing and managing the program. The authors connect the program to the relevant literature, detail aspects of the program including a social media campaign, an online scavenger hunt and a partnership with the colleges’ counseling services, and offer practical suggestions for librarians seeking to offer virtual programming.
