The Center for Human identification provides training and investigative support to resolve missing person and unidentified decedent cases across the United States. The University of North Texas Health Science Center is the home of the Laboratory for Molecular Identification and the Forensic Genetics graduate program. UNTHSC is privileged to have some of the most prestigious Forensic Geneticists as faculty members on campus. In 2011, the library decided to begin efforts to document the program with an oral history project. We identified individuals who had played a prominent role in the field of human identification or who could offer insight about the field and current research areas in forensic genetics on campus and interviewed them about the field, their current research and some of their experiences as professionals both at UNTHSC and in previous positions. The library used Adobe Premiere, Dragon, Vimeo and Digital Commons to make the videos publicly available.
