Established in 2005 by the OSU Libraries and Press, the OMA contains various collections showcasing how communities of color have contributed to the identity of the state of Oregon. The OMA also highlights significant people, events, and locations pertaining to the history of students, faculty, and staff of color in OSU’s history.
OMA Collections OMA collections include a variety of primary sources such as textual documents, oral histories, photographs, ephemera, audio/visual materials, as well as electronic and born digital records. Primary sources are the first-hand accounts of stories by told by the people who lived them and function as the evidence used to write history.
