About Oral History Projects

An oral history is an audio recording, obtained through an interview, of historical information about a person’s history or eyewitness account of a past experience.

The Massasoit Oral History Project collection operates within the Massasoit Community College Library as part of the Archive & Special Collections. The Archive identifies, acquires, and preserves materials that chronicle the history, organization, policies, operations, mission, and goals of the College.
