Museums and Covid-19 Project


This project is an effort to measure the impact of the new corona virus on museums, to keep record of publications and actions resulting from Covid-19, as well as to present useful resources to institutions as they face this pandemic.

Internet Archive

With the Internet Archive, we structured the Museums and Covid-19, where we intend to keep record of documents, corporate and/or government press releases, newspaper or web articles, among other digital objects related to museums and to the new corona virus. A backup of the collection, for the extraction of data in future searches, will be stored in a local database.
