Imagine you are a researcher 100 years from now, try to understand how COVID-19 impacted our community. What types of sources would you like to use? This project aims to document our experience in Humboldt County during this pandemic by creating an archive of what life in Humboldt looks like during this time.

Your experiences and feelings about today can become a part of history tomorrow.

The goal of this project is to create an archive of a material that will be publicly available to researchers at HSU in the future. To do this, we need your help. We would like to collect materials that you are creating right now to document this time.
