RMA Covid-19 Web Collection
Records Management and Archives is documenting Concordia-related Covid-19 news and events
The vital role of archives cannot be underestimated in these unprecedented times. Institutions, governments, international organizations, businesses and corporations rely on archivists and records managers to provide trustworthy preservation and access to critical information. Concordia Records Management and Archives is committed to these provisions for the internal and external community through several initiatives.
Since April, 2020, RMA has been crawling Concordia COVID-19 web content to document the pandemic. The evolving web collection contains publicly available news on the Concordia website, social media posts by student associations, faculty and researchers, and student newspaper articles.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to Concordia-related sites that fit into the COVID-19 web collection and we will add them.
If you have recommendations for new RMA Web Collections based on Concordia-related content, please contact us at email@example.com.
The Covid-19 web collection is part of the RMA Digital Preservation Strategy (DPS)
The Covid-19 collection is one of several responses from RMA that meet the challenge of preserving and managing the ever-increasing volume and technical complexity of digital records. The DPS reinforces RMA’s commitment to collecting, preserving and making digital holdings accessible for future researchers. Read More about Digital Preservation.
