Practicing Oral History to Connect University to Community illustrates best practices for using oral histories to foster a closer relationship between institutions of higher learning and the communities in which they are located.

Using case studies, the book describes how to plan and execute an oral history project that can help break down walls and bring together universities and their surrounding communities. It offers advice on how to locate funding sources, disseminate information about the results of a project, ensure the long-term preservation of the oral histories collected, and incorporate oral history into the classroom. Bringing together "town and gown," the book demonstrates how different communities can work together to discover new research opportunities and methods for preserving history.

Supported by examples, sample forms, and online resources, the book is an important resource both for oral historians and those working to improve relationships between university institutions and their neighboring communities.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this practical guide built on a diverse series of examples illustrating how inclusive, mutually-beneficial oral history work can be transformative to university/community relationships and holistic historical representation, the inspiration and guidance provided are relevant for both the seasoned or rookie oral historian."

Sarah Milligan, Oklahoma State University Library, USA

"Community engagement is central to libraries, which are tasked with circulating local knowledge, information, and understanding. This book shows that university settings are similarly poised to be of the community and not simply in the community. That premise is invigorating-and oral history, thoroughly explained in this text, makes the idea actionable."

Cyns Nelson, author of Oral History in Your Library: Create Shelf Space for Community Voice

"Whether in a community or university setting, any practitioner interested in expanding their oral history program, starting a new oral history project or program, or just being somewhere in-between will find this manual and practical guide relevant and vital to keep close at hand when diving into an oral history endeavor."

Katie Nash, Oral History Review
