The UNT Oral History Program includes:
- the largest public university collection of oral history interviews in Texas, with one of the nation’s pre-eminent World War II oral history collections;
- the preservation of more than 1,600 bound volumes of oral history interviews, with more than 150,000 pages of transcript;
- interviews on local African-American history, entrepreneurial history, university history, histories of the Holocaust, the New Deal, Texas politics, and other subjects;
- graduate classes in basic and advanced oral history; and
- the archives of the Oral History Association.
Students, journalists, researchers, genealogists, government agencies and members of the general public have used the collection to publish journalistic and scholarly articles, books, genealogies, and other materials.
