COVID-19 Impact on Archival Workers Survey Launched

The Archival Workers Emergency Fund organizers have created an anonymous survey to continue to keep a pulse on the scope and extent of the impact of COVID-19 on precariously employed archival workers.

As libraries and archives respond to the spread of COVID-19 and take steps to reduce the impact of the epidemic and prevent transmission of the virus, many institutions have closed, reduced hours, or required staff to work from home. Additionally, many libraries are currently facing or anticipating budget shortfalls in the coming year due to ongoing repercussions in the economy due to COVID-19.

Please take the survey by July 31!
