Giving Voice: Interpreting and Preserving Oral Histories (Atlanta, GA)

Presented by: CCAHA

With countless advances made in audiovisual technology during the 20th century, libraries, archives, museums, and historical societies, as well as families and individuals, set out to capture the stories of the past through recordings.  This oral history material was preserved using magnetic recording tapes, film, and digital formats—many now obsolete.  Thus, while of great value and worthy of preservation, any oral history material in a collection should be considered at-risk until an institution conscientiously develops strategies to preserve it. 

This national conference, intended for archivists, librarians, collections managers, and any other collections staff working with oral histories, brings together noted historians and preservation experts to discuss best practices and methods for capturing and sharing oral histories.  

LocationAtlanta History Center, Atlanta, GA
