The Leeds Oral History Project: Creating web portal for city’s oral histories

Posted on 13/06/2011 by


The Oral History Company recently announced its collaboration with Leeds City Council (City Museum & Libraries), The Thoresby Society, and West Yorkshire Archive Service, on a new initiative to construct a web portal for the gathering together of oral history archives throughout the Leeds area.

They are now on the hunt for oral histories of all kinds from in and around Leeds. If you have, or know of, oral histories of Leeds and surrounding area, please let them know by getting in touch so they can added, signposted, linked and publicised on the portal.
