I need information about COVID-19.
There are a vast number of Coronavirus/COVID-19 resources available on the web, from consumer health information to research data. Much of the content that's usually subscription-only has been made freely available to the public. To get started:
Check out our Harvard COVID-19 Resource Roundup
- a collection of the Harvard Library guides that link to major COVID resources
- links to other Harvard University projects and information sources.
The University of Virginia Library has an extensive COVID-19 resource guide. It covers a range of topics including
- government and consumer information, research materials
- fact-checking resources vital during this "infodemic"
- xenophobia links
To search for COVID-related journalism and media:
- check out the "Misinformation and the Infodemic"page of the UV library guide for help distinguishing good information from incorrect or misleading sources.
- Go to the home page for the major publications or sites of the area you’re interested in
- Try a search engine with “COVID-19” OR Coronavirus AND (a topic or keyword).
- An advanced search like Google Advanced Search can help you target geographic regions, web domains, websites, social media and other specifics.
