The materials to be reformatted include 49 magnetic audio cassette tapes containing oral histories recorded between 1965 and 1976. The bulk were recorded between 1971 and 1974. With several exceptions, all tapes were recorded at the Bryant Library in Roslyn, New York by Bryant Library reference staff. The cassette tapes are currently stored in plastic cassette cases within archival boxes. Tapes are arranged alphabetically by surname of interviewee. The inventory, created for submission to NEDCC and available to Local History Collection and Reference Department staff, is currently the only descriptive tool for the material. Although the library is in possession of a cassette player, the cassette tapes, and the content contained on them, are inaccessible to the public due to their age and fragile physical condition.
