Oral History Index

An International Directory of Oral History Interviews

Book - 1990
Rate this:
An i ndex to over 30,000 transcripts of oral history interviews held at nearly 400 centers in the US, Canada, Great Britain, and Israel. Compiled from questionnaires mailed to 1300 institutions. The bulk of the work is an alphabetical listing by interviewee (or collection title in the case of a group of interviews on a single topic). The entries show the date of the interview, a brief or key-word description of the subject of the interview (when provided by the center), and the center holding the transcript. The centers are also listed alphabetically by name, citing addresses, telephone numbers, and contact names. Perhaps the "enhanced subject access" planned for future editions promises a subject index. Without that, and possibly a geographic list of centers, the information provided is not very accessible to researchers. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
