"The coronavirus pandemic has rapidly changed our world and shifts in our societies continue to accelerate at an alarming speed. This medial response will require deeper thought and it is vital that social scientists contribute to the international debates. In response to this challenge, we have produced this pamphlet, ‘12 Perspectives on the Pandemic'. The free publication provides a virtual space for key thinkers in that field to begin these very conversations, observe the zeitgeist, draw breath. We hope it will become a useful part of the academic response to the global crisis."
A collection created by the Content Development Group of the International Internet Preservation Consortium in collaboration with Archive-It to preserve web content related to the ongoing Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
Identification of seed websites and initial web crawling began in February 2020, and the collection will continue to add new content as needed during the course of the outbreak and its containment. High priority subtopics include: coronavirus origins; information about the spread of infection; regional or local containment efforts; medical and scientific aspects; social aspects; economic aspects; and political aspects. Websites from anywhere in the world and in any language are in scope.
