A Journal of the Plague Year is a publicly sourced digital archive of people's experiences during COVID-19. The New Orleans Collection in A Journal of the Plague Year: An Archive of COVID-19 features materials related to COVID-19 drawn from the city and surrounding areas. New Orleanians are asked to share their stories-–photographs, blog entries, text messages, cancellation notices-–any materials related to the effects of COVID-19 on their community. All are welcome to contribute. The New Orleans Collection is particularly interested in the experiences of those involved in the city’s cultural community-–hospitality workers, musicians, artists, family businesses. The goal is let the world know what is happening in New Orleans and help create an archive for the future.
