Collecting Covid-19

Archives & Special Collections (ASC) are working with colleagues across the University to ensure our experience of, and response to, the Covid-19 pandemic is captured and preserved as part of the University Archive.

The current focus of this collecting has been around the processes, procedures and guidance the University has provided to support the transition to working, teaching and learning from home.  Activities have included capturing the University’s: 

  • website, particularly the Glasgow Anywhere portal 
  • social media output, such as #QuaranTeamUofG stories 
  • email communications to staff and students 
  • online events, such as Offer Holders’ Day 
  • guidance and procedures around the delivery of the current exam cycle through Moodle 

Going forward, ASC will look to work with colleagues to capture other activities across campus, such Covid-19 research projects and activities in support of the NHS, as well as the support and guidance issued by the Colleges, Schools and Professional Services.

We will also look to engage with the University’s research networks to map the resources required for research projects focused on Covid-19, and identify efficient methods of preservation and access. We are keen to work with colleagues across the University to build our programme and capture our experience of the pandemic.
