Urbana Free Library

Busey Mills Reading Room

Have you ever wanted to record your family's or community's stories? This introductory workshop will guide you from your initial idea to a finished project. We will discuss planning and conducting your interview, and give an overview of helpful technology. We'll also provide examples, additional resources, and highlight some local oral history projects.

The workshop will be presented by Kathryn La Barre, an Associate Professor at the School of Information Sciences, Archivist and Zine Librarian at the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center, and Librarian at the Rantoul Multi-Cultural Center. A longtime Urbana resident, she’s been involved with several oral history projects, and teaches a graduate level seminar in oral history at the University of Illinois.
