    New York State’s museums, libraries and archives are facing a monumental task to collect and preserve the history of the COVID-19 pandemic. From immediate efforts to long-term projects New York’s collecting institutions have responded in varying ways to meet the challenges associated with documenting the impact of a global pandemic on New Yorkers. We look forward to a roundtable discussion with representatives from a broad spectrum of organizations that have undertaken this work. Join us on Thursday, February 25 at 3 PM as we discuss COVID-19 documentation projects across the state, the challenges and success associated with this work, and how collecting institutions can balance the need to document individual stories with institutional responses to the pandemic.

    Presentation of the REALM Project Research for Museums

    March 12, 12 PM

    Kendra Morgan

    Senior Program Manager, OCLC

    Anna Munsun-Miller

    REALM Toolkit Editor, Museums, OCLC


    As libraries and museums around the country begin to resume operations and reopen to the public in light of COVID-19, the need for clear information to support the handling of core museum, library, and archival materials has become increasingly urgent. Join us on Friday, March 12 at noon for an overview of REALM project activities, a discussion about what is known and what is unknown about the virus, a review of the testing process and test results, and a look at the REALM ToolKit resources.

    About REALM

    The REopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums (REALM) Project is a research project conducted by OCLC, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and Battelle to produce science-based information about how materials can be handled to mitigate COVID-19 exposure to staff and visitors of archives, libraries, and museums.
