Archival Collecting Practices During the Pandemic Survey

June 4, 2020—LYRASIS has developed a survey to determine archival collecting practices during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Thank you for your interest in the project—your support is critical to understanding the needs of archives, and supporting the field during this crisis!

Please discuss any special needs or concerns related to the pandemic with your colleagues before completing the survey, so as to have one survey representing a single institution (rather than multiple surveys from a single site). The survey is available at

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Confidentiality: Your responses are being collected and analyzed by LYRASIS, an independent, nonprofit, membership organization serving archives, libraries, and museums. They will be kept confidential. Only aggregate results will be reported. To submit your response, be sure to click on the “Submit Your Responses” button at the end of the survey form. Please submit the survey by June 15, 2020 at 5:00 pm ET.

If you have any questions, please contact Katy Klettlinger at

Thank you for your support of this important project.
