The Special Collections and Archives Department of the McGoogan Library of Medicine is launching a campus-wide project to encourage UNMC students, staff, faculty, and alumni to document their personal experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak and contribute them to the library archive.
All members of the campus community are invited and encouraged to participate. We are interested in your stories about the shift to remote instruction and learning, studying and working from home, the impact of closing campus services, the ways you and your friends and family are staying in touch during this period of social distancing and self-quarantine, how you are helping during the crisis and so on. Submissions of all physical and digital materials are welcome. Some suggestions include journals, social media posts, photos, videos, audio diaries or voice memos, or documentation of your experience through art or craft.
Digital files or communication regarding physical donations can be made through our online form.
Thank you for your support and willingness to share your experiences with us and helping us document this moment in time for future generations. Please direct any questions to Carrie Meyer, Head of Special Collections and Archives, at firstname.lastname@example.org
