Special opportunity Help us archive the present!
SJSU’s Special Collections & Archives is launching a project, Spartans Speak on COVID-19, to ensure that personal accounts of experiences during these unprecedented times are included in the University Archives.
This is an opportunity both to lend your personal experiences and expertise to the work, but also to gain experience in something that rarely happens -- an attempt to archive the present.
The project is in the early stages of development and open to your ideas. The only prerequisite is that you have an interest in the work. You can determine how much time and energy you want to contribute.
Some possibilities for how you can participate: · Collaborate on strategies for getting the word out to our campus community and soliciting contributions. · Create personal collections documenting this time to submit to the project. · Collaborate in reviewing submitted materials. · Observe the process for curiosity or educational benefits without actively participating.
