A group in Brooklyn is documenting the pandemic for future generations to look back at the unprecedented times. 
Amy Lau is an archivist at the Brooklyn Public Library. She is part of a project underway at the Center for Brooklyn History to collect digital artifacts of the coronavirus pandemic. 
She says the project started last April and that the response has been interesting. The project aims to give people an idea of what it was like to live during the pandemic. 
They hope to one day have an in-person exhibit and even collect physical items.
