How to donate to Burns Library

Tell us your COVID-19 Story

The COVID-19 pandemic has made an indelible mark on the world. At Burns Library, we recognize that future researchers may want to know about our experiences. Diaries, scrapbooks, photographs, and other material documenting everyday life and major events are important primary sources now used in teaching and research. Similarly, our reflections on this historic time will help others gain insight.

To preserve unique Boston College voices, we have launched this “Tell Us Your Story” project. We encourage all members of the Boston College community to submit documentation of their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic to our University Archives.

Submissions can be done quickly through an online form or by contacting us. Your donation, as a primary source, will provide meaningful perspective to future scholars. If you have questions, please consult our frequently asked questions.

Thank you for sharing your story with us!
