Oral History Interviews for Libraries – CANCELLED

Public and academic libraries are involved with capturing and preserving the memories of citizens in their communities. Oral history interview recordings may already exist in many formats and need to be digitized. New projects need to be developed and organized, and plans made for digitizing them and making these materials available to the public.

Learn the principles of organizing and conducting oral history interviews in your community. Identify interview subjects, develop questions, obtain permissions for ownership and use, schedule and conduct interviews, and prepare to make interviews available. This all-day session will discuss all of these concepts, selecting audio and video recording equipment, and will briefly cover available editing software for both the PC and Macintosh operating systems. Transcription and other available software options are also discussed.
