UNE Together Apart: A COVID-19 Documentation Project

Contribute Your Experience 

We are living in historic times and we are interested in your story. UNE Special Collections has launched a project to collect the personal stories and experiences of students, faculty and staff in this unprecedented time. 

While the official response of the University will be documented and preserved through the records the administration creates, the individual stories of the UNE community will be lost without your help. We invite all UNE community members to participate. 

How to participate 

How you decide to record your experiences is up to you. Some ideas include a written journal, video diary, photos, artwork, social media posts, or any means that you use to express yourself.

We are interested in stories about your experiences on campus before spring break, your transition to an online experience, your life while away from UNE, how you are staying in touch with friends, etc. 

How to submit 

UNE Special Collections can accept just about any format, physical or digital. To submit materials, use this form. You have the option of not allowing researchers to see your contribution for 5 years and you will receive information about the copyright and use of your submission. You will be able to upload digital materials directly through this form. You can also mail physical materials to Zach Enright, UNE Special Collections, 11 Hills Beach Rd. Biddeford, ME 04005.

If you have any questions, please contact Zach Enright at
