Prof. Amy Zhou, Spring 2022

Researching COVID-19 and other pandemics

These resources may be helpful for students looking for previous scholarly work on pandemics/epidemics to help them contextualize our current crisis. This is a work in progress - please contact me if you'd like to suggest additions to this or any other part of this guide!

Some links lead to e-books purchased by Barnard/Columbia Libraries or available through our online journal subscriptions. Other resources were freely available from the publisher at the the time they were added to the guide. Note that these may become less freely available over time.
