Tell Us Your Story
Submit your written memories to one of our Tell Us Your Story projects! The ODU Libraries Special Collections and University Archives collections are made up of stories from people just like you! The goal of our Tell Us Your Story project is to actively collect digital written memories of current and past experiences of the ODU and local community around specific topics. All you have to do is choose a project and fill out a brief 4 to 5 question survey. Information about how to complete the survey, including rights statements and privacy options, are included in the survey forms. Please submit your story so that we can preserve it for future generations. Your story matters!
