From University Libraries:
The University of Northern Colorado Archives and Special Collections is collecting personal stories documenting how the COVID-19 pandemic affects the lives of UNC students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, and other UNC community members. The UNC Archives exists to preserve and provide access to campus history. By acquiring the recorded stories from the campus community we can document this extraordinary time in history, building a valuable resource for future students, historians, and scholars.
Newspapers, websites, and official documents will provide general and factual information about campus reactions and impact, but your personal, day-to-day social and emotional experiences will record what life was really like during the 2020 pandemic. This is the information we seek to capture and the information that future historians will want to know.
There are a number of ways that you can help build a robust historical record. Be a part of UNC history by contributing journal entries, photographs, webcam recordings, and more. Your materials will be preserved in the University Archives, where they may be shared online, used in teaching, research, and exhibitions, or as promotion of the university and university libraries.
