Doing Oral History at OSU: A Tale of Three Time Zones, February 15, 2013

The OSU Libraries & Press Library Faculty Association invites interested colleagues and friends to join us for the third presentation in our 2012/2013 Library Faculty Seminar Series.

In 2011 Chris Petersen set about learning how to do oral history work.  He traveled to the middle of Ohio for a crash course in interview techniques, field equipment, transcription software and much more.  What followed was a burst of recording that transported Chris to exotic locations, including Hawaii and the Valley Library third floor conference room.  This light-hearted and informative talk will recount the highlights of Chris’ journeys and some of what he learned along the way. This study was generously funded by the Robert Lundeen Library Faculty Development Award.

Presenter: Chris Petersen, Faculty Research Assistant, Special Collections and Archive Research Center

When:  Friday, February 15, 2013, 10:00-11:30am

Where:  Willamette Industries Seminar Rooms (3622), Valley Library, Oregon State University, Corvallis campus (
