In This Together: Documenting COVID-19 in the Commonwealth

University of Kentucky Libraries has launched a project to document the personal experiences of those who live, work or study in Kentucky during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. Stories will be preserved in the UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center along with other records about this time period. We invite all Kentuckians to share your oral histories, audio recordings, written stories, diary entries, photographs, videos, art and other documentation about the COVID-19 pandemic.  Contribute your story here
