Using the Collection

Interviews may be consulted by appointment at the Oral History Program at the UW-Madison Archives in Steenbock Library. Contact staff in advance of your visit, as some interviews may be restricted.

Patrons may also order digital copies interviews as .mp3s on CD or shared via or another file-sharing system. Contact the Oral History Program head for information regarding fees and delivery process.

Summaries and Transcripts

Interview summaries are available for each interview. Approximately one eighth of the interviews have been transcribed. We will email copies of tape indexes to patrons free of charge.

Photocopied indexes and transcripts are available for $0.15 per page, plus postage and handling, but we will try to send these electronically–probably as PDFs–at no charge.

Starting in August 2021, the OHP will transcribe on demand for patrons with disabilities.
