Responding to its members’ needs, RLUK developed a programme of activity, Capturing Covid-19, which aims to understand the impact of the pandemic on its member institutions. As part of the programme, a short survey was also launched in May 2020 to investigate RLUK institutions’ plans to collect material related to the Covid-19 crisis.

This report presents the results of the survey which are complemented by data gathered from online and social media research conducted by RLUK to identify the launch of relevant projects and initiatives led by RLUK institutions on contemporary collecting.
