Regional Network

Within this section, you will find a list of accredited individuals who are all members of the Oral History Society and experienced in oral history. They come from a wide range of backgrounds – community projects, libraries, museums, archives, and academic institutions – so there will always be someone who can help with your specific queries. They are willing to assist anyone new to oral history or wanting to discuss their work in detail with someone who is sympathetic and knowledgeable. They will act as a first point of contact for enquiries, give advice, and where appropriate refer you to other appropriate contacts or sources of guidance.

Network representatives actively encourage and support the development and use of oral history in their own locality, and contribute an overview of this to an Annual Report. Annual Reports from recent years can be accessed below, (in PDF format), and may help you identify other projects or useful contacts in your locality or area of work. For individual regional reports, visit the region, using the map on the right.

Some Networkers will be able to recommend local equipment suppliers, and may even be able to lend equipment. Others will have archival and copying facilities. All represent the Society in their local area and will lend an ear.

Our Regional Network Co-ordinator, Juliana Vandegrift, would be happy to advise you on who to speak to in your area or you can browse the Regional Network pages on this website which lists our members.
