The life of a sound archive

From July to September 2023, I, and two colleagues, had a two-month placement in the East Midlands Oral History Archive (EMOHA) as part of my course in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester.

This web exhibition examines the reasons behind undertaking this project and outlines what we have accomplished thus far. Our goal is to shed light on the daily operations of EMOHA and enhance awareness and knowledge about oral history and sound archives.
