REALM project site launch


REopening Archives, Libraries and Museums (REALM) is a research partnership between OCLC, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and Battelle to create and distribute science-based information and recommended practices designed to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to staff and visitors who are engaging in the delivery or use of museum, library, and archival services.  

Visit for more information on the project, research timeline, and committee members. Project updates and resources will be added to this information hub as they become available.

We encourage you to sign up to receive project updates by email and/or bookmark the project page, as it will be the primary source for housing all program results and resources. You can also follow OCLC on FacebookTwitterLinkedIn for the latest project updates and join the conversation using #REALMproject.
