COVID-19 has impacted every member of the Delaware Valley University community; we have all felt the effects of this global pandemic in one way or another. In the future historians will want to know what our personal, lived experiences of these uncertain times were from day to day, week to week, and month to month. In the spirit of documenting this moment in history, the University Archives seeks to preserve the personal experiences of Delaware Valley University students, faculty, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The University Archives invites you to donate materials that record your experience of living during the pandemic. It may be something you have already created or a project completed specifically to donate to the archives. The materials may be in any form you choose: hand written, typed, prose, poetry, drawn. Don't worry about good grammar, spelling, or style. The emphasis is on self-expression, candor, and a willingness to share your experience. Materials may be in either analog or digital form. Please see below for ideas, guidelines, and information on submitting your materials to the Archives.
