COVID-19: Ethical contemporary collecting
This form is for organisations and individuals interested in documenting and collecting around COVID-19 for long term preservation and access.

The intention is to create a publicly accessible directory, which is automatically updated as individuals complete the form. This directory will not be managed or maintained by one individual or institution, but instead be a shared and collaborative resource to connect individuals to each other.

Access to this form has been advertised publicly via social media, mailing lists and through professional networks.

The information gathered will be collated into a spreadsheet and shared freely with others interested in this topic. There is no obligation to share information you do not want to be made openly available - all questions are optional.

While these questions may be skewed to those working in heritage / collecting organisations, anyone is invited to take part, including individuals choosing to engage in this subject matter or from other disciplines.
