ASERL Is Expanding Its Oral History Collection
The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) announced that it is planning to expand its oral history collection by restarting its partnership with the University of Kentucky’s Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History. ASERL has a collection of “interviews with leaders who played key roles in ASERL’s growth and development over the years. ASERL first collaborated with the Nunn Center in 2016 to collect ten interviews with its earliest leaders. This new project seeks to grow that history, reflecting ASERL’s growth from a social organization to one of the leading voices in American research library cooperation.”
Jennifer A. Bartlett, oral history librarian at the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, is leading the project. ASERL notes that the two organizations “are currently compiling contact information for past ASERL leaders who will be invited for interviews. The interview sessions will each be 60–90 minutes in length, and are expected to begin in early Summer 2022. The new collection will be released to the public in coordination with ASERL’s Fall 2022 Membership Meeting, set for December 1–2, 2022 in Raleigh, NC.”
