COVID-19 Pandemic and Northwestern University

Archived since: Jun, 2022


The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, was caused by a viral strain of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which was first identified as an outbreak in Wuhan, China in December 2019. The United States’ first documented case of the virus was in January 2020 and the World Health Organization categorized the outbreak as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. In an effort to minimize transmission of the virus, Northwestern University responded by transitioning to remote education and services early in the pandemic and participating in research related to the virus and treatments. This collection of web archives documents the COVID-19 pandemic through the lens of Northwestern University.

Chicago Music Scene Web Archive

Archived since: Apr, 2016


The Chicago Music Scene web archive hopes to capture the “scene” in the Chicago musical community by documenting the web presence of specific ensembles, venues, festivals and publications. Before the utility of the Internet, musical activity was publicized in print publication, on broadsides, in pamphlets and in other ephemeral material. An understanding of the support and activity within a musical culture (or scene) is demonstrated in archival collections that hold this kind of material. Today, a music scene is represented on the web. As a searchable database, this archive offers the ability to learn about the current music scene in Chicago as it develops.
