University Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections seeks items from Nebraskans to build a new digital archive about the COVID-19 pandemic.
The archives staff is seeking stories, social media posts, photographs and more for the COVID-19 Digital Archive. It will document the effect of the pandemic and its aftermath on individuals in the university’s community of students, employees and alumni.
Firsthand accounts of lived experiences become primary sources crucial for understanding history. By collecting stories from a range of viewpoints, the University Archives and Special Collections aims to provide a more complete picture of the university and, for this project, the pandemic’s impact on the community.
Participants can share their experiences and observations of the past year. Archives and Special Collections has also provided questions for reflection. It is easy to donate and upload digital materials. Archives staff will review everything donated before it is made available to the public.
