University of Maine COVID-19 Community Archive Project

Raymond H. Fogler’s Special Collections Department has established the University of Maine COVID-19 Community Archive Project. The goal of this project is to create a community archive that will preserve the story of this unprecedented time in our community.

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 are also 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
