This online panel, hosted by the Office of the Manhattan Borough President, will be a discussion among representatives of several cultural institutions that have been collecting and archiving materials related to the COVID-19 pandemic experience in New York City. They will be discussing not only the successes and challenges of their particular archival projects (at the New York Public Library, the Museum of the City of New York, Queens Memory, and Brooklyn College), but also the need for a comprehensive digital home to organize the myriad existing and future documentary material gathered by museums, universities, libraries, neighborhood groups, and individuals in the five boroughs during the crisis. The panel will introduce the idea for a COVID-NYC Documentary Project, a consortium that aims to create such a clearinghouse.
