Title : University of Aberdeen oral history archive

Description :
This is the website of the University of Aberdeen Oral History Archive. The archive is made up of over 160 separate interviews, recorded since 1985, on the subject of the University itself. The interviews have been conducted with past students, members of staff, and eminent individuals concerned with the University. The site acts as a catalogue of the interviews, for which the researcher needs advance permission in order to gain access. Some sample interviews may be downloaded from the website itself. These require RealPlayer or some other such plug-in for playback. All aspects of life at the University are covered, from reminiscences on student digs to University government at the highest level.
