Covid-19 Collection Available Online
The Department of Distinctive Collections is pleased to announce that MIT community contributions to the COVID-19 Collection are now available online. This effort began in the spring of 2020 to collect the ongoing experiences of MIT community members during the pandemic in real time. Students, staff, faculty, researchers, and alumni contributed their personal reflections, first-hand accounts, photography, and artwork to the collection. Information about each donation — and a link to view and download the items — is available online. We are still accepting contributions, and all members of the MIT community are invited and encouraged to participate. Materials will be preserved and made available as part of the historical record which will contribute to our understanding of and research about this time for years to come. To share your story or view the collection, please visit libraries.mit.edu/documenting-covid19/
