UCLA Center for Oral History Research
 
该中心前身为UCLA Oral History Program,于1959年设立。
 

The mission of the UCLA Library's Center for Oral History Research is to document the history of the Los Angeles metropolitan region through oral history interviews. In addition to interviews conducted by its own staff, the center accepts donated interviews that enhance its collecting areas. Its staff members also undertake selected grant-funded projects that cover subjects beyond the Southern California area.

The center gives information and advice regarding the practice of oral history to UCLA students, faculty, and staff as well as to the broader Los Angeles community. It offers campus and community workshops and provides instruction on oral history methodology to UCLA classes.

 

History and Description

The UCLA Oral History Program was established by the Regents of the University of California in 1959 upon the urging of historians, librarians, and other members of the UCLA community. A unit of the Department of Special Collections of the UCLA Library, the program has built an extensive collection in regional and local oral history. A trained staff of interviewers, editors, and transcribers has recorded and processed well over five hundred interviews, ranging from one hour to seventy-six hours in length.

The program conducts audiotaped interviews, sometimes supplemented by video segments, of persons selected for their ability to provide first-hand observations on a variety of historical topics, principally related to the Los Angeles metropolitan area. A list of subject areas is available on this website. The program's interviews augment the department's collections and those of other campus libraries and archives. The personal papers of interviewees are often acquired, as are donated interview tapes and transcripts.

The program transcribes, edits, indexes, and binds its taped interviews. Descriptive records for all interview transcripts and tapes appear in the library's ORION2 system. ORION2 can now be accessed on the Internet at http://orion2.library.ucla.edu. A printed catalog of the program's holdings, The UCLA Oral History Program: Catalog of the Collection, Third edition, (Los Angeles: Charles E. Young Research Library, Department of Special Collections, 1999), is available through the Department of Special Collections. The department also provides access to interview transcripts completed by the Regional Oral History Office, University of California, Berkeley.

The Oral History Program has played an active part in the oral history field. In 1966 it sponsored the first National Colloquium on Oral History, which resulted in the formation of the Oral History Association. In 1968 the program sponsored the first nationwide training institute in oral history. In addition, the program has served as the editorial office of the Oral History Association Newsletter and the Southwest Oral History Association Newsletter and the executive secretary's office for the Oral History Association. Staff have continued to participate actively in regional, national, and international oral history organizations.
