University of Iowa Archives Documenting COVID-19 Project:


The University Archives of the University of Iowa Libraries invites you to contribute your recollections of how you are experiencing the ongoing situation around COVID-19. We are collecting journal and diary entries, emails, photographs, videos, voice memos and audio recordings, digital art, and other digital evidence of how our campus community has been affected, such as being displaced from student housing, working from home, the shift to online learning, social distancing, and self-quarantine. We’d like to learn more about how you are navigating the pandemic and we appreciate you taking the time to answer this questionnaire.
