The Library of Congress Calls for Oral Histories of the Pandemic

In partnership with StoryCorps, the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress is building an audio archive about people’s experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The public is encouraged to record their story or interview someone else by following the instructions and reviewing the tips on the Archive Activation website.

“By creating a tool to collect and preserve Americans’ pandemic experiences, the Library of Congress is honoring those who lost loved ones to COVID-19, those who worked on the frontlines of the pandemic, and those who were, and continue to be, impacted during this unprecedented time in American history,” the Library of Congress states.

This archive is part of the COVID-19 American History Project, “a Congressionally mandated initiative to document and archive Americans’ experiences with the pandemic.”

For more information, read the press release.
