Tell Your Story! GWC Archive of COVID-19

George Williams College Scott Library 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 GWC 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, podcasts, 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. Items may even 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:

For questions about the project please email Carrie Papa-Schold, Assistant Director of Academic Support

Katie went into work to print out a bunch of certificates for the students who won the awards that are usually handed out at the Honors Reception in April.  This year the event was canceled due to "Safer at Home" orders and the need for social distancing.  Picture taken by Dr. Kate Herrick on Monday, April 20, 2020.
