The MIA COVID-19 Archive Collection: Find out More & Contribute to the Collection

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for archivists to be proactive in recording the stories of this pandemic before they are removed from websites or deleted. Now is the time to take photographs and record the memories of our experiences in living through this pandemic.


As indicated in Mercy eNews two weeks ago, Mercy International Association is collating a digital collection of how Mercy has been impacted by and has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We want to safeguard your experiences for the inspiration of future generations.

Invitation to Contribute

You may have already received requests from local archivists to send them such material, and you are also able to send items directly to Anna Nicholls rsm at Mercy International Association. 

Please note that the collection/release form below needs to accompany items sent in.
