In this section, we offer Practical Guidelines and advice, and answer some of your questions regarding oral history, including how to plan and organise a project, setting up interviews, questions to be asked, and about the interview process itself.

We also provide a list of material for Recommended Reading to help you learn more about oral history.

There is also a Sample Interview Pack with examples of Participation and Recording Agreements, which can be downloaded.
