University of Iowa Libraries: Documenting COVID-19

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.

You may only submit material created by you and not copied from or based, in whole or in part, upon any other photographic, literary, or other material, except to the extent that such material is in the public domain, or you have permission of the copyright owner, or its use is allowed by “Fair Use” as prescribed by the terms of United States copyright law. If you would like to refer or nominate material which you do not own, please contact the Archives at

You must be 18 years of age or older to submit material.

Submitted material must not violate any confidentiality, privacy, security or other laws.
