      As many libraries and archives remain closed around the world, we recognize that we may not have access to resources required for our research. Use this forum to put out a call for specific resources you are seeking for and check this forum often to see if you may have a resource to share with our community of researchers. Happy sharing!

      A preview: An RSA webinar will be held Thursday, July 30, at noon (Eastern time): “Research in the Age of COVID-19: Access and Collaboration.” Watch for an announcement late next week. Also, for scholars who are not RSA members: Renaissance Quarterly’s 10 most downloaded articles of 2019 are free to access through the end of July 2020. You can view the articles by clicking here. (Actually, this is valuable even for members, who already have access to the journal — it’s interesting to see which articles are the most downloaded.)
