The archive of the Center for the Study of History and Memory at Indiana University is open to the use of researchers. The collection of oral history interviews is indexed in our online finding aid, and the accessibility of interviews is dependent on the deed of gift for each interview.
Copies of transcript pages are available only when such copies are permitted by the deed of gift signed by the interviewee. Scholars must honor any restrictions the interviewee placed on the use of an interview. Since some of our earlier (pre-computer) transcripts do not yet exist in final form, any editing marks in a transcript (deletions, additions, corrections) are to be quoted as marked. Tapes may not be copied for patrons unless the deed of gift permits it. Because our interviewees edit their transcripts, the transcript (if one exists) is the only version of the interview that may be quoted for publication. Interviews may not be reproduced in full for any public use, but excerpted quotes may be used as long as scholars fully cite any Indiana University Center for the Study of History and Memory data in their research, including accession number, interview date, interviewee's and interviewer's names, and page(s).
