Introduction to the New Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) for Oral Historians
This new workshop is run by the British Library’s oral history department and the Oral History Society. Following significant recent changes in data protection law, Dr Robert Perks, Lead Curator of Oral History at the British Library and Director of National Life Stories, will explore the impact of these changes on oral historians, including some sample scenarios. The course is aimed at interviewers, archivists, and project managers who are recording and collecting recorded testimonies and narrative data for the purpose of archiving and public access/reuse.
For guidance on data protection for oral historians and organisations holding oral history interviews see the Oral History Society advice pages.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018 and applies to any organisation, individual or group which collects personal data. This includes oral history projects, charities, community organisations, youth groups, libraries, museums, archives, educational organisations, and individual researchers whether salaried, self-employed or voluntary.
