Living History: Share Your Experience of the Pandemic

Recognizing the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic on our community, the Harvard Law School Library is undertaking a project to document this historic moment. 

The HLS COVID-19 Collection aims to capture the range of personal experiences and observations of HLS students, staff, and faculty living through the upheaval of COVID-19. It will also document individual and community responses to the unprecedented shift to remote learning at HLS and the impact of COVID-19 on the life of the school. 

We invite you to share your stories with the HLS community and to preserve your experiences for future generations.

We welcome all contributions, including personal narratives, reflections, journals, poetry and creative writing, audio and video recordings, photographs, artwork, oral histories, correspondence, and social media posts. Individual as well as collaborative contributions will be accepted. 

Contributions to the HLS COVID-19 Collection can be digital files, links to web content or social media posts, or physical materials. Donations of physical materials will be accepted after the HLS Library re-opens.

If you have questions about the collection, or if you would like to donate physical materials, please contact HLS Library Historical & Special Collections team:
