When COVID-19 hit, Queens College Special Collections and Archives (SCA) strategized to meet the research needs of staff and patrons, both temporarily barred from the physical library as the world moved into remote work. Our poster will detail how SCA launched a partnership with JSTOR Open Community Collections, a platform enabling institutions to share collections through JSTOR’s popular and robust research database. Recognizing the potential of the platform, which reaches millions of researchers every year, SCA uploaded some of the archive’s most frequently requested resources. Not only did JSTOR serve existing users effectively, it reached new audiences and generated publicity.
