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 is actively collecting the personal stories and experiences of students, faculty and staff from any point in the pandemic. We have all lived through the ups and downs of this unprecedented event. Your memories, current experiences, and how you have coped are all important to us.

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. You could create a written journal, video diary, photos, artwork, social media posts, or any means that you use to express yourself.

We can accept any format, physical or digital. To submit materials, please fill out 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. You can 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
