The University Library invites you to our spring virtual exhibit reception, Stories & Snapshots: Documenting a Year of the Pandemic. This exhibit focuses on the resiliency of our campus and surrounding community during these difficult times and takes a closer look at the daily challenges and celebrations through documentation submitted to the Together/Apart Covid-19 Community Memory Archive.
Please join our panel discussion of distinguished guests as we discuss the historical impact of the COVID-19 virus on our community, efforts by local cultural heritage institutions to document the pandemic, and the ways participants of these projects have shown profound strength in sharing their personal stories through photography, stories, and multimedia outlets.
Our panelists include:
*Ernest Cisneros, Special Collections Student Assistant
*Sean Visintainer, Head of Special Collections
*Susie Lan Cassel, Professor, Literature & Writing Studies Department
*Judith Downie, Special Collections & History Librarian
