Global Social Responses to Covid-19


Collected by: Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation

Archived since: Apr, 2020


The Global Social Responses to Covid-19 Web Archive is an initiative developed by librarians throughout the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation in partnership with librarians at Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, the University of California-Berkeley, the University of Hawaii, the University of Michigan, the University of Toronto, and the University of Virginia. Created in March 2020, at the onset of the pandemic, the Archive documents regional, social responses to the pandemic, which are critical in understanding the scope of the pandemic’s humanitarian, socioeconomic, and cultural impact. With an emphasis on websites produced by underrepresented ethnicities and stateless groups, the Archive covers (but is not limited to): sites published by non-governmental organizations that focus on public health, humanitarian relief, and education; sites published by established and amateur artists in any realm of cultural production; sites published by local news sources; sites published by civil society across and representatives; and relevant blogs and social media pages.
