How do diverse institutions cope with access issues when it comes to oral histories in their collections? Lightning session presenters discuss how their organizations provide access to oral history collections and how they are connecting their collections with users. Institutions are large and small; federal and educational; public and private. The projects include providing online access to materials, managing oral history collections without adequate release forms, and outreach to increase use of digitized collections.
