Narrating COVID at HSC

What is the Narrating COVID at HSC Project?

HSC faculty, students, staff, and alumni are currently living through a world-changing event and at the same time providing expertise and support to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of Narrating COVID at HSC is to collect, preserve, index and make available for use a historical record of the impact of COVID-19 on the HSC community. Historians, scholars, future students, medical professionals, health experts, HSC administrators and others will want to understand and learn about how we responded to the pandemic.

As narrator of your COVID-19 experience/s you will provide a historically valuable record during this unique period in our history as we commemorate 50 years of providing solutions for a healthier community.

Contribute Your Story

Contribute your experience/s to Narrating COVID at HSC and together by sharing our stories, we will preserve the evidence of this historic event in the Gibson D. Lewis Library University Archives.

Help the Lewis Library Archives document the impact the pandemic is having through your role as a medical provider, student, faculty, staff, or alumni. Submissions will be harvested and housed in the Lewis Library University Archives for preservation as part of the University’s history. For each contribution, donors will be asked to accept rights, permissions, and privacy terms.  

Contributions may be in the form of a PDF, Word Document, text file, image, video, or audio file.
