Oral history services provided by the State Library

The State Library - telephone 08 8207 7344, email - provides advice on designing and managing an oral history project and ongoing support once the project is underway. One day introductory oral history workshops are run throughout the year by Oral History Australia SA/NT with support from the State Library.  These workshops explain the stages involved in organising an interviewing program, conducting and recording interviews and developing documentation for the interviews such as labelling, summaries, conditions of use forms and transcripts.

Copies of the Oral history handbook by Beth Robertson can be purchased from Oral History Australia, SA/NT Inc, PO Box 3113, Unley SA 5061. Copies are also available through interlibrary loan at local public libraries. This is an excellent publication for anyone working in the field of oral history.

High quality field equipment is available for loan, and training sessions are provided on the use of the equipment. The loan period is usually one week but longer term loans are available to country based projects. Borrowers sign a lending agreement in which they undertake to reimburse the Library if the equipment is lost or damaged, and agree to deposit the original recordings in the Library for inclusion in the Somerville Collection if they meet its collection development policy.
