Oxford University to collect the artefacts from its COVID research

Oxford University’s History of Science Museum and the Bodleian Libraries are joining forces to collect the stories of the COVID-19 pandemic and the extraordinary responses to this global challenge across Oxford University. The global pandemic is history in the making, and these two Oxford institutions are playing a critical role in capturing and preserving this history. The material heritage – objects and documents – captured for this project along with personal stories will be collected for researchers and the public to study and explore. Few institutions have contributed as much to COVID research over this period as Oxford University. Oxford University staff and students, and anyone connected with the University’s response to the pandemic are invited to share objects, documents and personal stories
