After over a year of teaching and learning remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the end is finally in sight! Want to explore emerging scholarship on Covid-19? Curious about how our current experience compares to the 1918 Influenza Epidemic? Take a look at our new and extensive resource guide on Pandemics & Epidemics

We initially conceived of this guide at the very beginning of Los Angeles County’s Safer at Home Order. It has grown in scope and ambition since then as students and faculty have expressed interest in conducting research on pandemics and epidemics more broadly. 

The guide serves multiple purposes:

  • It is designed for browsing and exploration. 
  • It is a place to get started on research about epidemics and pandemics in history, politics, the arts, and the sciences. 
  • We also hope it will provide resources to help members of our community understand and navigate the current and evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

More information will be added to the guide over time. Please send suggestions and feedback to Adam Rosenkranz, Arts & Humanities Librarian.
