We are living in unusual times, and there's no doubt that this period will have a place in our global history. Future historians will want to know what our lives were like, and how our experiences were shaped by who we are as individuals, family members, and community members.

In the spirit of documenting this moment, Penfield Library's Archives & Special Collections (at SUNY Oswego) invite you to keep a diary of what it's like to live during the COVID-19 epidemic. We are interested in hearing about the experiences of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as the experiences of other people living in central New York.

We would like to extend a special invitation to members of underrepresented populations. We recognize many underrepresented populations will experience the epidemic differently based on their memberships in these groups, and we think it's important that your voices are heard, now and in the future.
