Outreach to special populations can be a sensitive endeavor, especially when the population, such as veterans, has a unique life experience in comparison to the general population. The use of oral histories for engagement and outreach can be a useful tool in making a connection to the veteran population because it gives them an opportunity to talk without being judged and the library a chance to listen. This case study highlights the collaboration between the library and the campus veteran center in an effort to come together and showcase veteran stories around their tattoos.
