Oral History

Oral History Journals & Articles


1. To find a specific print or e-journal by title or ISSN, search the Journal Titles List.

2. When you already know the article author, title, journal, issue, etc., and just need to find the full-text (if available), try the Article Citation Linker!

3. To improve your database search results try using the truncation symbol, often an asterisk "*". So searching photo* will simultaneously search photo, photos, photography, photographic, etc.
