UO Vets - Background

Text
Background
The UO Veterans Oral History Project was established in 2012 with the goal of documenting the experience of veterans from the University of Oregon and around the state. This project specifically aims to collect histories from veterans from all branches and roles within military service, not just combat veterans.

Solution
Utilizing the WordPress content management system, Interactive Media designed a website which features images and quotes from veterans involved in the project. Visitors can see a full list of veteran bios which can be filtered by service branch and location of service. Each one of these bios links to their associated audio and text transcript archived in the UO Libraries online repository.
