Oral History Program (OHP)

Oral History Projects

USF Libraries Oral History projects resulted from partnerships with various individual researchers and organizations. They represent view points from a variety of individuals on a variety of subjects. More information on these partnerships can be found on the collection page for each project within our digital collection. For more information on using oral histories in your research, please see our page on "Using Our Collections" as well as our terms of use regarding oral histories:

Environmental Studies and Sustainability

The allocation of non-renewable natural resources is a vital issue in the 21st century. These oral histories explore global, urban, and environmental issues within a Florida context.

LGBTQ+ Studies

Florida and Local History

Unprecedented global migration over the last century compels scholars to understand the roles of culture and identity within American society. In conjunction with the Florida Studies Center, this collection provides scholars with rich primary source material relating to race, ethnicity and gender.

University of South Florida History

Holocaust, Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity

In coordination with the USF Libraries Holocaust and Genocide Studies Center, these oral histories look to the past in order to understand the causes of mass violence, treat its effects on victims, and to help prevent future atrocities.
