Documenting the GCC community during COVID-19

We are all living through a historic crisis, and facing new challenges. While all of us in the GCC community are living through these events at the same time, our individual experiences of the COVID-19 crisis are unique to our own circumstances. Future historians (including student historians in GCC classes) will want to know how the coronavirus pandemic affected the daily lives of everyday people.

The GCC library and archives staff invite you to contribute your story to this important historical record in whatever format feels most authentic to you: in the form of a journal, poetry, photographs, screenshots of your social media posts during this time, etc. You could also choose to interview a family member or friend, provided that they understand that their interview will be housed at the GCC archives (this will also require an additional permission form).

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below. We encourage students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other members of the local community to contribute.

If you have questions or comments, please email GCC librarian and archivist Claire Lobdell at lobdellc@gcc.mass.edu, or check out the F.A.Q.’s below.
