COVID-19 is an unprecedented crisis in our country. Among the businesses and organizations struggling to adapt are our cultural institutions. MLA seeks to understand the effects of the pandemic on our local organizations, and how we can best be of service.


The resources below offer insights and suggestions on how museums and libraries can respond to current challenges. MLA is committed to continually sharing new resources from around the field to help us all learn from each other and keep moving forward.


Additionally, MLA is pleased to announce we have recently been awarded funding to document the (short term) institutional impacts of COVID-19 on Lehigh Valley cultural organizations. Read on for details and how you and/or your organization can be part of the project.

Measuring institutional impact of covid-19 IN


MLA is documenting the impact of COVID-19 on four cultural/historical institutions in the Lehigh Valley over the next 18 months. Even if your organization is not part of this project, you can still get involved. Visit the resources page and contribute via the confidential form, or e-mail for more information.

This project is sponsored in part by the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium, with generous support provided by a grant

to Lafayette College from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
