This guide contains practical suggestions for and theoretical discussions on preparing oral history transcripts for publications or public view. Although intended as a guide for nonprofessionals, it can be used by those who are conducting more serious research and are not familiar with the techniques of oral history. Because the guide deals only with the transcribing and editing aspect of oral history, the author begins with a discussion of what to do as the interview session ends. Topics discussed include interview notes, supporting photographs and illustrative materials, legal agreements, and how to prepare an archival copy of the tape. The decision of whether or not to transcribe is then examined and transcribing procedures are explained. The guide discusses how to audit a tape and edit the transcript, and provides useful examples of mistranscriptions and editing. The narrator's review and approval, legal agreements, and completing and indexing the transcript are also treated. The guide ends with a discussion of how to choose an appropriate depository. A bibliography of how to do it manuals, journal articles, programs, and books dealing with oral history is also included. (Author/RM)
