COVID-19: Documenting the MSU Experience
The current COVID-19 pandemic is universally upending daily life, in both expected and unexpected ways. We are living through an unprecedented historical moment, one which will continue to affect and shape our lives in the coming months and years.
Montana State University (MSU) Library seeks to document the observations, creative output, and experiences of those affiliated with MSU during this pandemic in an effort to create an institutional archive of lived experiences. We are looking for student, staff, and faculty-generated reflections and artifacts of life during the pandemic--anything that reflects your feelings, changes and disruptions to your daily life, and thoughts related to COVID-19.
Please be creative! Through these efforts we are co-creating a living community archive, one which seeks to document the MSU experience in full. These records will constitute the "'COVID-19: Documenting the MSU Experience' Collection", which will be preserved and made accessible in MSU's Special Collections and Archives. While we would love to have your name attached to your work, you are also welcome to submit your content anonymously (please refer to the submission options at the end of this form).
**Please note that we are working separately with MSU faculty members to collect student assignments related to COVID-19. If you are a student who has completed such an assignment, please check with your instructor before submitting that material here.
