Access To Collections

Explore the Story Map on our homepage for oral history exerpts, abstracts and a subset of accompanying photographs.

Public access to the complete collections is available by appointment at 1) our location in Berkeley, California, 2) Ashoka University (for academic research only), 3) Guru Nanak Dev University (for academic research only), and  4) any of our open house events.  Use this form to make an appointment for onsite access.

Furthermore, a subset of oral history interviews are currently freely accessible via the Stanford University Libraries' Digital Repository via online streaming.  Pending funding required for the accession, more interviews will be freely available via online streaming at the Stanford Digital Repository over the coming years. 

Archive access via online paid streaming is presently limited however to academic researchers, museum and collections currators, authors, filmmakers and other educational media makers.  Aspiring researchers may fill out this form to request online streaming access.

Family members of interviewees may request a digital file copy of their oral history interviews via this online form (with the interviewees' permission).

Thank you for your patience as we work through the logistics of dissemination around this significant and delicate collection.
