The ethos of every library is to serve and to instruct. Library professionals teach every day in the sense that they show patrons where to find books or how to use computers. Increasingly, however, library users just don’t have the time to attend face-to-face workshops in advance of needs that they may have. They want to know the answer to their questions when THEY need it, not when YOU teach it. Take Your Library Workshops Online! will help you move valuable “teachable moments” from the physical library or classroom to virtual spaces. It features real-life examples of how to: create online synchronous sessions, brief tutorials, and pointed screen captures. Learning in the online environment can happen in a two-minute video or in a creative meme-like screen capture and can cover topics from logging in to a database to evaluating sources. Creating these learning objects can take from less than one day up to a week depending on the time you have to devote to it and the level of detail required.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has recently estimated that the world equid population exceeds 110 million. Working equids (horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules) remain essential to ensure the livelihood of poor communities around the world. In many developed countries, the equine industry has significant economical weight, with around 7 million horses in Europe alone. The close relationship between humans and equids and the fact that the athlete horse is the terrestrial mammal that travels the most worldwide after humans are important elements to consider in the transmission of pathogens and diseases, amongst equids and to other species. The potential effect of climate change on vector ecology and vector-borne diseases is also of concern for both human and animal health. In this Special Issue, we intend to explore our understanding of a panel of equine viruses, looking at their pathogenicity, their importance in terms of welfare and potential association with diseases, their economic importance and impact on performance, and how their identification can be helped by new technologies and methods.
