Helping each other

If you are planning a local recording project, you will find it helpful to read Robert Perks's booklet, 'Oral history - talking about the past' (Historical Association; Oral History society, 1995), and to visit these websites:

Oral History Society
East Midlands Oral History Archive
Wessex Film and Sound Archive

If you have completed an oral history project, please consider offering the recordings to the Oral History Archive for safe-keeping, or give us a chance to make copies which will be accessible to all.

If you are interested in making oral history recordings for us, or would like to help us by listening to tapes, creating copies for public use or inputting information onto computer, please contact us
