Aurora University's Colby Archives and Schingoethe Center wants to collect materials you are creating during this extraordinary time and tell the story of our community for future generations. Inspired by the Illinois State Museum's 'Illinois Stories COVID-19' project we are looking for members of the Aurora University community to tell their stories.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR: Personal stories that reflect your experience during the pandemic, for the benefit of future generations. Submit personal stories, digital images, poems, or videos.
WHAT WE WILL DO WITH SUBMISSIONS: In the short term, we will display some projects on social media. In the long term we will preserve these items for future study. We may even request items to be displayed on campus.
HOW TO SUBMIT: To submit, fill out the form and attach your file! We will ask for basic information about the creator and creation of the material and ask you to agree to a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial-Share-Alike CC-BY-NC-SA license which allows others to remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms (for details, go here: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/)
