To do this project, we need your help. We would like to collect the materials you are creating right now that document this time and submit them to this project for archiving and future research. Some examples of items that could be included in the Community Archive are:
- a sign or art you or someone else in your community created
- screen shots of social media posts
- videos or recordings of events, classes, workouts, spoken words and music shared online during this time
- photographs of your home/work-space or scenes from around your community that illustrate changes in society taken during this time
- captures of classroom work or lectures given online
- homeschool schedules or other daily routines for parents working from home
- your own journal entries (written, audio, or video) documenting your experience
Submissions may be in the form of digital photographs, text files, PDFs, spreadsheets, presentations, audio files, or video files. Please submit materials using the COVID-19 Community Archiving Project submission form.
We have compiled some frequently asked questions, and we are happy to answer any other questions you might have about the project or your submissions. Please contact Virginia Hunt, Associate University Archivist for Collection Development and Records Management Services, with any questions.
