Digitisation and Digital Editing: An Introduction for Oral Historians

This one-day course, organised jointly by National Life Stories at the British Library and the Oral History Society, will explore how to use an ordinary personal computer to digitise, preserve and edit oral history recordings for wider access, such as CD publication, web use and site specific playback. It will be led by Rob Perks (the BL’s Curator of Oral History) and Tom Ruane (Audio Engineer, BL Sound & Vision Technical Services).

Please note that the course is aimed at those who have already gathered or archived oral history recordings. It is not suitable for newcomers to oral history, who should attend the introductory course.

Due to high demand and in order to ensure that each course has attendees with a variety of interests and backgrounds, only one person from any one institution may attend each course. Places are limited to eight per course.
