Documenting AUC Response to COVID-19: Share Your Story Today!

The AUC Woodruff Library is documenting the AUC community’s response to COVID-19 and the pandemic’s impact on students, faculty, and staff by collecting stories from across the AUC community. These stories will become part of the Library’s Archives Research Center and will help future students, administrators, and researchers understand how we experienced this unprecedented situation.

We are interested in stories from AUC students, faculty and staff about how COVID-19 has affected their campus and personal lives – the shift to virtual instruction and learning; studying and working from home; the ways you, your friends and family are staying in touch; how you are managing the everyday challenges of self-isolation and social distancing, etc.

How you choose to share your story is up to you – video/audio recordings, photographs, social media and blog posts, digital journals or diaries, etc.  The COVID-19 pandemic is a unique historical event that we all are experiencing first hand.  Your personal shelter-in-place story can be a part of this historical narrative for future generations!
