American Folklife Center and StoryCorps Begin Project to Document Life During the Pandemic
The Library of Congress started a new initiative to document Americans’ experiences during the pandemic. The library’s American Folklife Center will team up with StoryCorps for the congressionally funded COVID-19 American History Project, which is “a multiyear effort to collect, preserve and make available to the public the oral histories of frontline healthcare workers, survivors of loved ones who died, and others impacted by the pandemic.”
The American Folklife Center created an online research guide, as well as a guide to submitting stories via StoryCorps.
“Every American has a unique story about the COVID-19 pandemic. It is vital that we document these stories so future generations will understand the trials, tribulations, and resilience of the American public during this tumultuous time,” says Nicole Saylor, director of the American Folklife Center.
