Fogler Library to archive UMaine experiences during COVID-19 pandemic

University of Maine Raymond H. Fogler Library is asking students, staff and alumni to help preserve the story of this unprecedented time in our community. The COVID-19 Community Archive Project will document the actions, thoughts and reflections of the UMaine community as they navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To create this archive, Fogler Library hopes members of the UMaine community will document their experiences and submit those materials to its Special Collections department. Materials could include departmental emails and publications, photographs, personal reflections, social media posts and updated course syllabi.

Students, faculty, staff and alumni also are encouraged to submit personal journals, blogs, social media posts and any other materials that capture the day-to-day experience of this time. 

Materials can be submitted via an online form or by email to The ultimate goal of the archive is to make these materials available for future researchers.
