Be a Part of History

By living through the pandemic of 2020-2021 you are making history!

During this unprecedented time in the history of SUU, Special Collections at the Gerald R. Sherratt Library would like to document your Coronavirus/COVID-19 experiences. This pandemic has affected all of us in many different ways and we are all eyewitnesses to the events that have been unfolding this past year. Recording our daily experiences, thoughts, feelings, and responses to this crisis will provide future historians, researchers, and students with information and data on life in our community during this trying time.

Please take some time each day to record your thoughts, experiences, creations, and submit them to our archive. We welcome photos as well. Our goal is to capture your personal experiences to add to the historical record kept by SUU since our founding in 1897. Please submit as many times as you like.

Please use the follow the link HERE to submit your story.

Special Collections will be open for appointment only from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. Please call 435-586-7945 or email us at for an appointment. 
Thank you for your understanding as we all take measures to protect our community.


We are located on the Garden Level of the library (basement).
