We invite you to share your experiences with COVID-19 and to have that experience preserved in the University Archives at Loyola Marymount University.
This is an uncertain and unique moment in history. Your experiences right now are part of what will become the history of Loyola Marymount University. Join us in capturing our “new normal,” from boredom to fear and everything in-between, so that future researchers will know what 2020 looked like from the perspective of the LMU community. We want to hear about what the Spring semester has been like for you, whether you are still on-campus, in the Los Angeles area, or back at home.
We are looking specifically for any creative response to COVID-19 while in quarantine or staying at home. Have you journaled? Composed a song? Created artwork? Written an essay? We want to preserve it! Interested in participating but don’t want to share your personal creative work? Consider uploading a video diary about your life in quarantine as it relates to LMU. Submissions will be preserved in the University Archives as part of LMU’s historical narrative and made accessible to future researchers.
You can submit your files (.jpg, .pdf, .mp3, .mpeg, .wav, .doc) via our submission website.
Audiovisual files should not exceed three minutes in length. If you need additional assistance, let us know through our online form: Ask Archives and Special Collections.
If you have worked on anything analog (i.e. that cannot be uploaded digitally) and would like it preserved in the University Archives, please contact us using the form and we will work with you.
