Archive of the Pitt Community Response to COVID-19

The University of Pittsburgh Library System’s University Archives is working to document the impact of COVID-19 on the university community, as well as Pitt’s response to the pandemic. In addition to the websites and emails we are currently collecting, we are asking Pitt students, faculty, and staff to consider collecting records that document their experiences and depositing them in the University Archives. We intend to make the resulting archive of reflections and files available for research.

It represents the first addition to the collection from a literary figure and author, thus expanding the scope of the collection beyond filmmaking as established through the inaugural acquisition of the George A. Romero Archival Collection.
