Video Services. Collection, 1985-ongoing

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: MSU Archives Collection 110

Scope and Contents

Most of the videos were produced by the Minnesota State University, Mankato ITS department. Other videos were recorded under special circumstances and then collected with the others. In addition, some tapes were produced by a private production company, most especially in the case of certain commencement videos. Some tapes are edited and some are just raw footage. Others consist of one steady shot of a particular lecture or other university-related event and due to the structure and self-explanatory nature of the events they show, those videos never needed any editing. Unless noted, these series are arranged alphabetically.


  • 1985-Ongoing
