Wolf Tales is the NCSU Libraries Special Collections Research Center's mobile video oral history program. Through short video recordings at events around campus, the Wolf Tales program collects the stories of the NC State community, past and present, with a special focus on documenting student voices (both current and alumni) and other historically under-represented narratives in university history, including faculty and staff. Recordings are captured as part of partnerships with groups within the NC State community, as well as Libraries-hosted open recording days where all members of the community are invited to participate. Videos are archived in the Special Collections Research Center and shared online for research access, as well as shared with participants and partners for their own use.
