Message from the ROHA Director

My fellow staff members and I at the Rutgers Oral History Archives hope this message finds you and your loved ones well. We have heard from many of you since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. In particular, teachers and students have expressed an unprecedented need for our online resources as schools have shifted to remote learning environments.

In response, ROHA will be adding fresh tools and resources over the coming weeks to our new Digital Learning Center. The DLC features curated lists of interviews, podcast episodes that take you inside our oral histories, and a new tutorial video to help guide you through our online archive of over 1,000 interviews. We also encourage you to sign up for our email newsletter to get caught up on the latest additions each week.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your oral history needs. Please let us know how we might better serve you through this new resource. Most importantly, we hope you and your families stay safe and healthy.
