Oral History Recordings Online- The CSULB Virtual Oral/Aural History Archive
Three hundred hours of original recordings from the Women's History, Labor History and Long Beach area oral history collections are now available online in this ground-breaking Virtual Oral History Archive. It features the voices of activists and ordinary people, and documents life in the first half of the 20th century. Interviews have been broken into organic time segments, which are summarized, and assigned search terms. The user can listen to an entire tape, or can choose a specific segment. The site design affords the user several ways of locating material: by browsing the collections, working through the hierarchy, or searching for interview segments that match a search criterion specified by the user.
Narrators in the various series include African American men and women, Issei and Nisei, Latinos/Latinas, and Eastern European immigrant women.
