The Library has made available, with worldwide open access, transcripts of interviews with some important figures in the University’s recent history. In 2012, John Casteen, Leonard Sandridge, Sandy Gilliam, and Gordon Burris sat down for in-depth interviews with writer and historian Sheree Scarborough.
The full transcripts of each of these four interviews are now available, in e-book/PDF format, via the University’s Libra institutional repository.
