Agreement To Participate
Global Mormon COVID Stories project, and/or USU special collections
You are being asked to participate in an oral life history interview in connection with the Global Mormon
Oral History Project. You are being asked to participate in order to help document the experiences of
religious people and institutions in the time of COVID-19. You will be asked to speak about your
perspectives, thoughts, and experiences working with people of faith in the midst of this global pandemic.
The interview should last between thirty minutes to an hour, but can be adjusted as time and your
schedule permits. If you have any photographs that you would like to share that help explain some of your
experiences you may share them with the interviewer, which he can scan to add to the resource pool for
this project.
The interview will be audio taped and/or videotaped and transcribed. Gathered materials will be donated
to the Pandemic Religion digital archive, the Global Mormon COVID Stories Project at Claremont
Graduate University, and/or Special Collections at USU. They will be placed in an online digital archive
and website so that scholars and members of the public can access them.
You will receive a copy of your oral history for your own records once it is transcribed. There is no direct
compensation for participating in this oral history project. Your participation in this project is completely
voluntary. You may stop or withdraw from the interview at any time or choose not to answer any particular
question for any reason without it being held against you.
You have two options regarding confidentiality:
1) You may choose to be identified by name in any transcript or reference to the information

books, articles, or others works generated from this oral history project.
2) You may choose to have your name removed from your archived and digitized oral history until
2040, when your name will be reattached to it. Until 2040, scholars or others using your oral
history would not have access to your name, referring to you as “Anonymous” or assigning a
pseudonym to your oral history. After 2040 you would be identified by name in any transcript or
reference to the information contained in this interview.
