Oral History Online is a growing collection of oral history in English and an index to freely available oral history on the web. It also contains pointers to some 3,000 audio and video files and over 17,000 bibliographic records.

The information is chiefly American, with some histories from Canada and other English-speaking countries.

The index can be searched by narrator's age, race, occupation, birth and death dates; by interview subject and place; by repository information and other search criteria.
