    If you  have ever considered doing an oral history of a family member, friend, or  members of your organization or company, this workshop will give you basic  information on how to get started. Included will be interviewing techniques,  effective procedures, and standards for recording, documentation, and  preservation of your work.

After this workshop, you  can test out your new skills by taking an oral history of your mother for a  special Mother’s Day gift!
