China's national library launches 'collective memory bank' to document coronavirus outbreak stories

The National Library of China has launched a "collective memory bank," to collect and preserve items and stories from China's fight against the coronavirus outbreak. 

The project aims at documenting the impact the pandemic has had on peoples' lives, emotions and social relationships. 

Articles, pictures, audio, video, multimedia resources, manuscripts, letters, photos, paintings and calligraphy related to the war against COVID-19 are some of the items the project will be looking for.
