Archiving COVID-19 experiences

Tuesday, April 21, 2020

The time we are living in now is quite unprecedented. We are working from home, practicing social distancing, finding new routines to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. Special Collections & Archives (SCA) is interested in collecting the experiences of the Waterloo community, including students, staff, faculty, and alumni. 

University of Waterloo main entrance at University AvenueWhat does this mean?

  • Are you taking photographs of quiet streets that are normally bustling with activity?
  • Are you journaling about your experience of working from home?
  • Are you a poet and are using this way to documented this current way of living?

If you are doing any of these activities, or others, and you would like to explore the possibility of donating your experience to SCA, please connect with Nick Richbell, Head, Special Collections & Archives. He is interested in helping the community document these unusual and challenging times for future scholars to explore and research.

Your submissions will be made available for research and may be exhibited online or in a physical exhibit.
