COVID-19: A Long Island Journal

Laptop desk photo

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the world in innumerable ways. Situated on the south shore of Long Island, the Molloy College community is neighboring one of the epicenters of this pandemic. As our lives and communities change, it is important that our local experiences are documented for the future.

Molloy College Special Collections is creating an Archive of materials to document this challenging time. We seek journal or diary entries, reflections, photographs, videos, voice memos, audio recordings, and other digital evidence relating to the impact of COVID-19. Handwritten journals and physical works can also be sent in. Examples of experiences may include working from home, the shift to online learning, social distancing, and self-quarantine.

Members of the Molloy family and the greater Long Island community can contribute their experiences using this Google Form (use this MS Form with your molloy.edu account) For questions, please contact Christine Yu, Associate Archivist, at cyu@molloy.edu.

The goal of this collection is to preserve the events and experiences important to individuals and communities in our area so that future generations may learn from our shared journey.
