This introductory workshop serves as an informative overview to the field of oral history from initial idea through finished product. The workshop will cover specifics within three sub-categories of oral history: Pre-Interview, Interview, and Post-Interview, including the basics of oral history, project planning, technology, interview setup, writing questions, release forms, providing access and/or a transcript, available resources, and any other topic of interest to the attendees. Additionally, the workshop will include a series of audio question and answer examples from several oral history interviews to help individuals hone interviewing skills and provoke additional discussion in the workshop. Lastly, the workshop features discussions on establishing and preserving an oral history archive.
