In this handout, Leslie McCartney, Curator and Robyn Russell, Collection Manager, both at the Oral History Program at Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska, Fairbanks, provide some best practices for curating an oral history collection from its arrival to dissemination. At the end of the handout you will also find a series of appendices with useful links, templates, guidelines, policies examples, and workflows. This handout was used in their presentation on oral history, given at the SHN ANLA Workshop on Digital Preservation, held in the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, on March 9-10, 2016.
