Our national and regional teams can connect you with other oral history projects and the Oral History Society has representatives from all over Britain. British Library Sounds offers free online access to 80,000 selections from the library`s extensive collections of unique sound recordings. Life Story Interviews with oral historians and others who have practiced oral history The British Library Modelform contains the opportunity for interviewees to pass on their copyrights to the library in their words. The future publication and reuse of interview recordings is easier when project managers or interviewers are looking for the transfer ("assignment") of the interviewee`s copyright to the project or place of filing. In practice, where good relationships have been established and maintained, most people feel comfortable assigning copyright knowing that their experience will help create a public understanding of the past. It will also be easier to comply with data protection laws with public archives, museums or other. The Oral History Society provides useful guides on the law and your tasks. In short, any case of processing of personal or sensitive data, such as. B recordings and oral documents, must be justified by a "legal basis for processing." "Archiving in the public interest" is such a legal basis, and the Oral History Society recommends that you use it in your documentation. Any organization or person that "archives personal data for purposes that go beyond the immediate interests of the organization itself" is "archiving in the public interest." Polly Russell and Barley Blyton are food authors and academics. In 2015, they were Goodison Fellows at National Life Stories, where they focused on oral history interviews "Food: From Source to Salespoint." They can incorporate the costs incurred by the partners as well as any in-kind contributions they can make. This could include, for example, the training of archival volunteers if they are not familiar with the processing of digital oral histories.
Think about how to recruit interviewees and all associated costs, such as advertising. B, booths at events, trips to meet new contacts. You may need new collaborators, volunteers or independents, or a combination of them to deliver your project. Oral history projects require a number of skills and staff may be required for a number of roles, for example: Interviews and songs recorded by oral history pioneer George Ewart Evans between 1956 and 1977 If you work with volunteers, it may be helpful to recruit people with knowledge of a particular language, community or subject. Think about the consequences if you ask volunteer staff to be an interviewer; ensure that they are well trained to ensure that interviews are of high quality.
