In celebration of NYU Abu Dhabi’s 10th anniversary, and beyond, the NYUAD Library is facilitating the NYUAD Memory Project, a project to capture community members’ memorable stories as well as significant moments in NYUAD’s history, in an interview format. Modeled after StoryCorps® in the United States, and other community Memory Projects, this valuable, grassroots community oral history collection will become a core part of the NYUAD University Archives, where it will be preserved and made available for future users and researchers alongside other materials and historical records in the Archives. All NYUAD community members are invited and welcome to participate.
