Summary

The interview is done, the tape recorder packed away, the data on your computer. The bulk of your oral history is finished-or is it? Nancy MacKay, archivist and oral historian, addresses the crucial issue often overlooked by researchers: How do you ensure that the interview you so carefully collected will be preserved and available in the future? MacKay goes carefully through the various steps that take place after the interview-transcribing, cataloging, preserving, archiving, and making your study accessible to others. Written in a practical, instructive style, MacKay provides many resources for the researcher to consult as well as sound, down-to-earth advice. This book will be of interest to oral historians, librarians, archivists and others who conduct oral history and maintain oral history materials.
