SKOL Vikings! Training Camp Oral History project at Minnesota State University, Mankato
In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Minnesota Vikings Training Camp at Mankato, University Archives staff conducted an oral history project to document Vikings Training Camp at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Over 130 fans, community partners, Minnesota State University employees, and alumni Viking players agreed to share their Vikings Training Camp stories. We blitzed Training Camp at Mankato with an iPad on a stick and snapped up quick three-question interviews. Learn about our experiences with equipment, conducting interviews, making the interviews accessible in our digital collections, and creating an app for the Blue Earth Historical Society’s exhibit, “Celebrating 50 Years of Vikings Training Camp: A Mankato Tradition.” Take away practical tips on how to modify our project to fit your needs.
