Ethical guidelines, practical and methodological training, webinars, digital tools, software and links: this section contains a variety of useful tools for anyone wishing to develop an oral history project.

Our affiliates continuously produce a wide variety of research and multimedia projects. Here you will find information on current and past projects, as well as on the many outcomes produced by our community.

Our archives contain thousands of oral history interviews recorded by our affiliated researchers and partners. These documents can be consulted by researchers and the public. We also accept donations of oral history interviews.
