New Free Ebook From the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA): “The Covid Archive: A Finding Aid to Government Documents Related to the Covid19 Pandemic”

“From DPLA:

Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is pleased to announce the publication of a free ebook, The Covid Archive: A finding aid to government documents related to the Covid19 PandemicThe Covid Archive is a digital finding aid for the digital archive of government documents related to the response of U.S. federal and state governments to the Covid 19 pandemic.

The finding aid provides an index to more than 3,000 government documents related to the pandemic response that were identified by the Covid Tracking Project and digitally preserved by DPLA. To our knowledge, this is the most comprehensive archive of documents related to the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States.

The Covid Archive is the latest public domain work to be published as an ebook by DPLA. In late 2019, DPLA published a free ebook version of The Mueller Report, which was followed by The Impeachment Papers, a compendium of public documents related to the impeachment of President Trump; The Senate Intelligence Committee Report; the New York City Internet Master Plan; and the Report into Investigation of Allegations of Sexual Harassment by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. All of DPLA’s publications are available for free download here.

This project was a collaboration between DPLA, the Covid Tracking Project, and Digital Divide Data. Special thanks to Jennifer Clyde from the Covid Tracking Project, who served as the project’s editor.

DPLA’s ebook work is supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
