TCCL COVID-19 Chronicles
Due to COVID-19, we are living in an unprecedented time, and The Claremont Colleges Library Special Collections wishes to capture and preserve our community's history during the COVID-19 pandemic. Materials donated to this effort will be added to a larger COVID-19 archival collection with contributions from students, faculty, and staff of The Claremont Colleges as well as the surrounding community so future generations can learn from and experience this event through our community's first-hand accounts.
What can you contribute?
DIGITAL IMAGES/PHOTOGRAPHS/VIDEOS: We are particularly interested in images depicting how the pandemic has changed how we function in society, such as:
• Images of closed businesses, places of worship, schools, parks or other public areas.
• Images of groups of people wearing masks while in public.
• Images of signage related to COVID-19.
• Images of public areas cordoned off to traffic (foot or otherwise) due to COVID-19.
• We can accept images in jpeg, tiff, or raw format.
WRITINGS: We seek original writings by individuals (diaries, journals, poetry, essays, short stories, novels, etc.) related to COVID-19 in order to document the writers' experiences during the pandemic.
• We can accept digital materials in Microsoft Word, Rich Text, or PDF format.
• We can also accept materials printed or handwritten on paper.
EPHEMERA: We seek 2-dimensional materials such as flyers, booklets, pamphlets and signs relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to donate material, you need to:
• be the photographer, creator, or copyright holder;
• have created the material after December 2019;
• have made the item/taken the photograph as part of your experience related to the COVID-19 pandemic
