Abstract

Legal and ethical questions about the preservation and use of interviews must be addressed at the outset of any oral history project. Tools such as consent forms, information sheets and copyright agreements help ensure that interviewees' choices are informed and respected, before, during and after recording. This article analyses the tools and methods used in the United Kingdom, and explores some of the ethical implications of the «digital revolution». It argues that whatever the methods employed, documenting consent is both helpful and necessary for the practice of digital oral history.
