REALM has released the results of Test 6, which concentrated on materials commonly used in furnishings and exhibits in archives, libraries and museums: glass, marble, laminate, brass, and powder-coated steel. After two days, the virus was not detectable on the brass or marble. After six days, the virus was not detected on the glass, laminate, and powder-coated steel. Full results can be found at https://www.oclc.org/content/dam/realm/documents/test6-report.pdf

Raw datasets for the first five tests are now available at https://www.oclc.org/realm/research.html. (Raw data for Test 6 is available at the link above.) The toolkit has also been updated with the Test 6 results, new graphics, and a visual interpretation of the Phase II literature review. the new materials can be found at https://www.oclc.org/realm/resources.html
