COVID-19 Community Archive for Loyola and Notre Dame

LNDL's Archives and Special Collections is collecting documentation of the experiences of the Loyola and Notre Dame communities on campus, at home, and elsewhere during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your contributions will be preserved in the archives, so that future researchers can understand how this pandemic affects not only your work, but also your personal life, family, daily activities, and community.

We are reaching out to you as students, staff, and faculty to submit your documentation. We are also seeking submissions from alumni in exceptional situations and/or who are working on the front lines of the pandemic.

What Can I Contribute?
