I teach history at Simon Fraser University and am the founder of the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimonies at alotarchives.org. We collect existing oral testimonies, create digital copies and transcripts, and post them online. We work with scholars, community researchers, existing archives, and cultural producers. ALOT is non-proprietary, and uses creative commons licensing to manage copyright of this data. Access to the archives' holdings will always be free, but some material will be restricted at the request of interviewers and/or interviewees.
