Title

Whitman College Coronavirus Stories Collection

Description

In collaboration with students in Library 160: Documentation and Representation in Archives, the Whitman College and Northwest Archives created the Whitman Coronavirus Stories Project to capture the Whitman community’s experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2020, Whitman classes were moved online for the remainder of the semester. The project aims to document how students, faculty and staff are impacted as they work, teach and learn from home, and practice social distancing. The goal is to collect the stories, experiences, and evidence of our changed lives, both the painful and difficult, and the unexpectedly beautiful and hopeful. Academic, creative, artistic or reflective submissions are encouraged and accepted. To read more about the project and how to participate, visit our website: https://library.whitman.edu/blog/whitman-coronavirus-stories/. We invite continued submissions of stories to this project.

With the onset of online piano class, Professor Vining and I created a multimedia project. Using GarageBand and iMovie, we layered nature sounds and visuals with two piano tracks. First I composed a baseline to which Professor Vining responded to with the piano. Overall the project uses different forms to communicate a sense of fluctuating change that we have been experiencing during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This is an ABC book of suggested search terms on the Amazon.com website on May 6, 2020. At that time, most states were under some manner of stay at home order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and nationwide people were dealing with the spread of the virus even as many kinds of products, such as toilet paper, hand sanitizer, disinfectants, and masks, were still sold out or only sporadically available in stores. Many of the search results reflect those circumstances.
