Oral History Collections.
Meckler, Alan M., Comp.; McMullin, Ruth, Comp.
This index provides access to the combined collections of some 400 oral history centers which house recordings or transcripts of interviews of more than 2,700 persons. The index is arranged in two parts: a name and subject index, and a list of American and foreign oral history centers. Information that applies to all the interviews in a collection is contained in the section on oral history centers, and information that applies to a single interview is contained in the name and subject entries. The name and subject index entries give speaker's name, title, number of pages if interview is transcribed, name of collection in which the interview took place, conditions for use, language of interview, number of hours of tape, date of interview, name and location of oral history center, and cross-reference to other interviews.
