Research Help Services

Contribute to the Library’s COVID-19 Archive

The Emmanuel d’Alzon Library invites students, faculty, staff, and alumni to contribute their stories related to the impact of the COVID-19 global health crisis. If you are keeping a journal, creating artwork, or involved with another project that reflects your experiences during the pandemic, we would be happy to preserve those stories for future researchers in Assumption’s institutional repository, Digital Commons @ Assumption.

Submissions may be made by students electronically through our Documenting COVID-19 submission form. If you don't have a Google account, please email Mary Rigali at m.rigali@assumption.edu or Barrie Mooney at bmooney@assumption.edu. Contributors will be required to give permission to share their story publicly online, either immediately or at some time in the future.
