Oral History Information Sheets

EMOHA has produced a series of information sheets for people interested in getting started in oral history. These provide a useful starting point for anyone who is interested in getting involved in any aspect of oral history. The information sheets are available on-line in PDF format, just click on the link and it should open so you can print a copy. Please be aware that some of the weblinks mentioned in the information sheets no longer work.

For a more in-depth look at oral history EMOHA has also created a collection of downloadable information sheets plus podcasts on the Building and Enriching Shared Heritages website - http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/history/outreach/besh/oral
