Future scholars, staff, and students will want to understand this period of history was like. Who better to describe it than the people who lived through it?
For that reason, Falvey Library, in conjunction with the Albert Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest, is launching a “Documenting COVID-19” collection effort.
All Villanova students, faculty, full and part-time staff, and alumnae/i are invited submit stories, photographs, video, audio, or digital objects that reflect experiences about school, work, home, or events surrounding the BLM protests.
The goal is to ensure that future generations will have original sources of information regarding the lives and times of Villanovans who experienced this global pandemic.
Collecting will be ongoing throughout the pandemic and in the subsequent weeks after the pandemic has passed. People are allowed to submit as many times as they like as events or emotions change. All submissions will be preserved in the University Archives at Falvey Library.
