Document your Story: COVID-19 Pandemic Project Archive

 Collection
Identifier: COVID-001

Scope and Contents

Document your Story: COVID-19 Pandemic Project Archive invited members of the Muncie and Delaware County community, along with students, faculty, and staff at Ball State University to keep a diary, in any form, to highlight living during this unprecedented time. The Ball State University Libraries Archives and Special Collections, the Muncie Public Library, and the Everyday Life in Middletown Project collaborated to publish an online community archive to preserve and provide access to materials received.

Participants were welcome to submit type or handwritten reflections, poems, writings, artwork and drawings, photographs, and videos. The emphasis of this project was on self-expression, candor and a willingness to be a social commentator and to gather stories. This collection is arranged by month to document the order in which the stories were received.
