What is the OHAA

The Oral History Association (OHAA), a non-profit body, was formed in 1978.

The aims of the OHAA are:

  • to promote the practice and methods of oral history
  • to educate in the use of oral history methods
  • to encourage discussions on all aspects of oral history
  • to foster the preservation of oral history records

State and national conferences include discussions about oral history projects and issues such as ethics, recording technology and copyright.
