Columbia University Archives

Documenting COVID-19

Alma Mater in front of Low Library

The University Archives is collecting materials to document the coronavirus pandemic. We are looking to hear from a diverse set of voices about your lived experience and to learn about your new everyday lives. Historians of the future will want to know how we spent our days during these tumultous times. We invite you to be an active participant in documenting our community‚Äôs response to the COVID-19 pandemic by completing the Columbia University Archives COVID-19 Experience Questionnaire


Research Guides

The Columbia University Archives staff has put together some Research Guides to help you take advantage of our holdings. For each type of search, you will find the most popular resources available and how to access them: some online and some in person. The guides focus on alumni, faculty, course descriptions, Master's essays and dissertations, and buildings and grounds information.
