Oral history is the collection and study of historical information about individuals, families, important events, or everyday life using audiotapes, videotapes, or transcriptions of planned interviews. At DANS (Data Archived and Networked Services), the Netherlands Institute for Permanent Access to Digital Research Resources, there are available more than 3000 oral history datasets in over 75 collections.

Oral history data at DANS in the electronic archive EASY (www.easy.dans.knaw.nl) consists of the audiovisual files, metadata on collection and interview level, transcriptions of the audiovisual narratives and additional related files (such as summaries, biographies and photos). The data are archived for the long-term, and if access/security level permits made available to users by streaming versions and/or transcriptions.

Purpose of the oral history stall at the CLARIN bazaar is meeting people from other center and countries, exchange ideas and challenges, and talk about future collaborations.
