The IISH and the Pandemic

Research output: Contribution to journal/periodicalArticlePopularizing


The Covid pandemic and its consequences for public and private life have been talked and written about endlessly in the past year, from a great many different perspectives and views. Some of the most disputed statements were probably
those arising from the recent curfew, introduced with parliamentary approval and compared by some to the situation under the German occupation. Although any such comparison falls short, this is actually the first time since May 1940 that the Institute has had to close its doors for an extended period; reason to consider how it has dealt with this and other consequences of the pandemic in the past year. To what extent did services to visitors and users of the collections continue, and what was still possible in collection development and cataloguing, research, and publications?
