The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on our lives, both locally and globally. It is now over a year since the first full UK lockdown and this last year has been a strange experience for all of us. We have had to adapt to new ways of living, working and learning.
Clackmannanshire Archives & Local History Service would like to collect and preserve a record of Clackmannanshire’s experience of this time, to provide future generations with an insight into how we coped with and were affected by the pandemic.
Here are some examples of the paper-based or digital material that we would be interested in collecting:
Physical items will be kept in Clackmannanshire’s secure archive store in the Speirs Centre, Alloa. Digital items will be securely stored in the Council’s computer systems.
You will be asked to sign a donation form for our records but your personal details will not be shared with anyone else.
The items you donate will be listed and catalogued, and eventually made available to the public as a record of how Clackmannanshire coped with and was affected by the pandemic.
Closure periods for privacy and data protection can be placed on items with any personal details or photos where people can be identified.
For further information or if you have any questions about the Covid-19 Collecting Project, please contact us using the details below.
