HS/HSL seeks COVID-19 Stories and Experiences from UMB Community

June 1, 2020

In an effort to capture the UMB Community’s experiences during the current pandemic for future researchers Historical Collections in the Health Sciences and Human Services Library has launched a project: UnMasking a Pandemic: Stories from UMB during COVID-19.

The project aims to collect stories, photographs, blogs, videos, etc. from across the UMB Community about the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Members of the campus community at all levels (staff, faculty, students, etc.) are encouraged to participate in this project.  The HS/HSL is interested in receiving items of personal reflection, creative work, or anything that documents your thoughts, emotions, and experiences during this incredible time.

We are accepting:

  • journal entries
  • personal essays
  • poems, short stories, etc.
  • photographs (or other visual art pieces)
  • music or other audio recordings
  • videos
  • screenshots of personal websites, blogs, or social media post

To participate please see the Project’s Website and fill out the Survey to submit any items.  If you have any questions or would like to submit physical items to our collections please contact, Tara Wink, Historical Collections Librarian and Archivist.
