In April 2021, members of New York State Covid-19 and Minority Health Disparities Engaged Researchers Working Group began contributing a series of white papers to a collection in Scholars Archive, University at Albany's institutional repository. This poster reports on the reach of that collection after one year. The literature suggests that information users beyond the academy rely on a variety of sources in the course of their work, most of which can be described as grey literature. The poster will also present preliminary data collected from information users in the nonprofit and government sectors of New York State. It illustrates the potential for community-focused research published outside of traditional channels.


Poster presented virtually at the 2022 American Library Association Annual Conference. Funding for this project was provided by the Dr. Nuala McGann Drescher Diversity and Inclusion Leave Program.
