New COVID-19 Resource Archive is Available

In response to a growing need for reliable information on the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) launched a new COVID-19 Resource Archive. Geared to help emergency managers and homeland security experts, this platform provides access to a publicly available collection of COVID-19 resources. To provide the most comprehensive overview of the pandemic, the Archive is updated daily as new documents become available.

The Archive, carefully curated by the Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL), is a repository of national and international responses to the coronavirus featuring documents on preparedness, response and recovery, as well as the current debates on a medical, economic and social response. The collection includes documents from agencies and organizations tasked with the development and implementation of public health policies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and many others. Furthermore, the collection includes federal, state, local, and tribal guidance on public safety and reopening procedures, Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports, as well as other materials published by domestic and international think tanks and research institutes.

This user-friendly platform highlights specific topics, ranging from public health to national security. Each topic includes a more nuanced selection of COVID-19-related resources. In addition to documents included in this collection, users can do an advanced search on the HSDL website for more information.
