Reopening Archives, Libraries and Museums

Reopening Archives, Libraries and Museums (REALM) Information Hub (OCLC)

As libraries and museums around the country begin to resume operations and reopen facilities to the public, there is need for clear information to support the handling of core museum, library, and archival materials. The REALM project is conducting research on how long the COVID-19 virus survives on materials that are prevalent in libraries, archives, and museums. The project draws upon the research to produce authoritative, science-based information on how—or if— materials can be handled to mitigate exposure to staff and visitors.
