[Libs-Or] Preserving the history of this moment

Hello Libs-OR,

Do any of you know of coordinated projects in Oregon to preserve the
history of this ever-evolving era of COVID-19? If so, how do we contribute?

I know about the Oregon Historical Society's Share Your Story
<https://ohs.org/research-and-library/share-your-story.cfm> project.

There is also the worldwide International Internet Preservation
Consortium's COVID-19 archive <https://archive-it.org/collections/13529> -
I am curious if any Oregon libraries are contributing to that in a
systematic way.

I've taken a moment to save a few current pages for libraries and local
governments from around Oregon in the Wayback Machine at Internet archive (
but it seems like a coordinated effort is in order - and is probably
already happening without my awareness.

I'm also curious if anyone is deliberately collecting and organizing
photographs of our empty streets, closed signs, and the like.

Thanks all,

*Rachael Short*
