OHAM: Access


To learn about the contents of OHAM's collections, visit the OHAM LibGuide.

OHAM provides access to interview recordings and text transcripts for personal research use, teaching, and educational purposes. Free online streaming access to most interview recordings is also available for a limited period of 30 days. Digital copies of most transcripts are also available. Transcripts are provided free of charge to members of the Yale Community. A fee of $5 per interview transcript applies for researchers outside of Yale.

To request online streaming access and copies of transcripts, complete a Reproduction Request Form. Not all interviews have been digitized and transcribed. A staff member will contact you if OHAM is not able to fulfill your request.

Please contact Anne Rhodes with any questions, or to make an appointment to visit the collection at the Irving S. Gilmore Music Library.


Rights and permissions for OHAM materials vary between individual interviews. Researchers wishing to publish or broadcast OHAM materials are responsible for obtaining direct authorization from copyright holders: generally, the interviewees or their estates.
