Oral History Collection Management: An Annotated Checklist For Archives And Libraries

October 5, 2016

This high-level checklist was created by Bertram Lyons for a program coordinated by the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts on collecting and preserving oral history materials in libraries, museums, and archives. This checklist does not consider the act of recording oral histories as a collector or interviewer; it documents basic principles for managing oral history collections within a collecting repository.
