Zach Johnson, curator of Special Collections, hopes you will join in efforts to archive COVID-19 pandemic experiences, including recent vaccine experiences. Join other Vanderbilt University and VUMC students, staff, faculty and administration in providing materials about this window of time for future historians and researchers.
“It’s easy to think about history as historians looking at the facts from an era and telling us what happened,” said Johnson. “But without individuals taking time to share their personal experiences, it is difficult to reconstruct a multi-dimensional account of what happened.”
Submit a journal entry, photographs of books you’ve read, recipes you’ve cooked, the garden you’ve planted, or a vaccine experience, to our COVID-19 Archive: https://covidarchive.library.vanderbilt.edu/
