The University of Kentucky Libraries is launching a project to document the personal experiences of those who live, work, or study in Kentucky during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. Your stories will be preserved in the UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center along with other records about this time period. We invite all Kentuckians to share your oral histories, audio recordings, written stories, diary entries, photographs, videos, art, and other documentation about the COVID-19 pandemic.
This does not have to be a one-time submission! Feel free to contribute your thoughts and experiences multiple times over the coming months as we continue to move through this historic event.
Before you submit your material, you will be asked for some basic information about you and the material you are submitting, as well as a page for permissions. Then you will be able to record and/or upload your stories, memories, and documentation of your experiences.
Please comply with local and state stay-at-home orders while self-documenting.
