Museums, historical societies, libraries, classrooms, cultural institutions, alumni associations, and neighborhood groups are among the growing list of organizations who use oral history to document and change their own communities. This series will fill the gap in oral history research and practice by providing concise, instructive books that address circumstances of oral history practiced outside the academy. Each title will provide practical tools for conducting and presenting oral history, based on the Best Practices of the Oral History Association (USA) while being accessible to community-based organizations who apply oral history methodology to their work.
