Transcripts of the Project's interviews are organized and edited for continuity; the publications include an introduction, table of contents, photograph of the interviewee, other illustrations, and a detailed index. The completed volumes are available unless the interviewee has requested that they remain sealed for a specified number of years. The manuscripts are available in Special Collections at McHenry Library, UC Santa Cruz. Many of the volumes are also available in the circulating collection of the library and can be checked out through interlibrary loan services if you are not in the Santa Cruz area. Most of our volumes are also available in full text (pdf format) through our website.
In most cases the manuscripts are also available for the cost of reproduction. Contact the project staff at email@example.com or 831-459-2847 to place an order.
No part of any manuscript may be quoted for publication without the written permission of the University Librarian, University of California, Santa Cruz.
Other functions of the Project are to help acquire published and unpublished source materials for the Santa Cruz County Collection; to assist both researchers and students working on local history topics; to give instruction in oral history methodology; and generally to help in developing and augmenting local history sources.
