As this is the case, researchers may access the interviews at the National Library of Australia in Canberra, or via interlibrary loan (see instructions below).

For personal copies (which may be ordered for a fee of $16.50/CD via our Copies Direct service) and public use, permissions must first be obtained via the Oral History and Folklore branch at oralhistory@nla.gov.au – we will contact the rightsholder on requestors behalf. A note explaining interest in the material and any intended use must be included. This may take some time as rightsholders are invited to respond at their own convenience.

Instructions for interlibrary loan

You can request the material through the interlibrary loans service of another library (public, university, work), however, please be advised that some libraries may charge you for this service. Once we receive an interlibrary loan request from another library, we will send them the material for you to access there.

Your library will receive the material and you will be required to view the material under the supervision of a librarian, as you would if you were in the National Library. You will need to follow their interlibrary loans request procedure so please ask the library you wish to use for instructions.
