As the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and public health crisis continues, it is essential to capture and preserve related research, academic and scholarly work, and personal stories crafted by our Jefferson community. Archiving this material will help researchers and historians learn and reflect, and allow public health experts to prepare for the future.
By preserving the work of our Jefferson family, we can study the pandemic’s impact on our healthcare system, teaching and learning institution, and the broader community.
Jefferson Libraries (Paul J Gutman Library & Scott Memorial Library) is already preserving COVID-19-related content by archiving Jefferson websites and social media content, capturing Jefferson’s official internal and external communications, and accepting Jefferson-produced research and scholarship on COVID-19. The latter is all publicly available in the Jefferson Digital Commons (JDC).
