To access tapes and transcripts held in the Collection readers must fill in an Oral History Request form, available from the Petherick Reading Room. Access to tapes and transcripts is subject to the conditions imposed by interviewees. In most cases access is available, but in some cases recordings are restricted. Sometimes written permission from the interviewee is required. In other cases the tapes and transcripts are subject to complete restriction for a long period of time. Tape recordings may be listened to and transcripts viewed in the Petherick Reading Room. Unrestricted tapes and transcripts can also be accessed through inter-library loan through another state or local library.
