Documenting the Wellesley College COVID-19 Experience

The Wellesley College archives is excited to announce the launch of "Documenting the Wellesley College COVID-19 Experience." This project aims to crowdsource born digital materials related to the Wellesley College community's experience with life during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The archives is seeking donations from members of the Wellesley College community, including staff, faculty, students, and alumnae. Donations can include anything from artistic endeavors such as poetry, to assignments that had to be transitioned amidst switching to virtual teaching, to photographs - anything that speaks to this unprecedented time and how it has affected life for the Wellesley community. Donations will become a part of the official college record of this time we are living through and will be preserved as a part of our emerging COVID-19 collection.

The archives needs your help! Please submit donations here: https://sites.google.com/wellesley.edu/documentingcovid-19/home

We hope to collect material from the most diverse pool of community members as possible. If you have technology questions about submitting, or general questions about the process, please feel free to contact us at archives@wellesley.edu or 781-283-3745. Donations will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
