In neighborhoods, schools, community centers, and workplaces, people are using oral history to capture and collect the kinds of stories that the history books and the media tend to overlook: stories of personal struggle and hope, of war and peace, of family and friends, of beliefs, traditions, and values-the stories of our lives.Catching Stories: A Practical Guide to Oral Historyis a clear and comprehensive introduction for those with little or no experience in planning or implementing oral history projects. Opening with the key question, ldquo;Why do oral history?rdquo; the guide outlines the stages of a project from idea to final product-the interviewing process, basic technical principles, and audio and video recording techniques. The guide covers interview transcription, legal issues, archiving, funding sources, and sharing oral history with audiences. Intended for teachers, students, librarians, local historians, and volunteers as well as individuals,Catching Storiesis the place to start for anyone who wants to document the memories and collect the stories of community or family.
