In the spring of 2020, CSU Libraries' Archives & Special Collections launched a campus-wide project to encourage students, staff, and faculty to document their personal experiences during the coronavirus outbreak and contribute them to the University Archive. All members of the campus community were invited and encouraged to participate. This digital collection includes photographs, videos, and other materials.

View the call for contributions here: Contribute Your Stories to the COVID-19 Archive.
