U.S. Presidential Election Reflections:

Social Media Collecting Project

Sponsor: Special Collections & Archives, Utah State University Libraries

Principal Investigator: Randy Williams, USU Fife Folklore Archives Curator and Oral History Specialist

Dates: 9 November 2016 - 9 December 2016

Project: You've been reading them all day. Now, you can help Utah State University Special Collections & Archives gather and preserve the reflections and reactions of U.S. citizens and others to the 2016 presidential election.

Share your story!: Whether you are encouraged or discouraged by the election results, we want to collect your reflection of this momentous national event. It is important for our children and future generations to know what we were thinking and feeling. Like tiles in a mosaic, each voice adds shape and dimension to our national identity.

The project is fast (under 20 minutes) and all online. You can copy and paste something you've already shared on social media or compose your reflections at our online collection site.


Help us get the word out! Please share on your social media sites.
