Abstract
Most people seem to prefer to receive information through oral transmission. In this study I examine how recordings of oral documents behave in an archival context.

The study filters the oral documents through a continuum thinking and explores how oral documents relate to each other outside an archival context. It also traces the oral documents inside of an archival institution and examines how the original oral document now relates to it’s archived relative. The conclusion shows that many of the characteristics traditionally linked to archive practices is already in... (More)

It also traces the oral documents inside of an archival institution and examines how the original oral document now relates to it’s archived relative. The conclusion shows that many of the characteristics traditionally linked to archive practices is already in action within the oral documents. It also shows that as archival records, aspects of the original oral documents has been lost and their context replaced by an archival context. The richness of the original medium are far gone and what is left is a record embedded in its new archival context. A context that is by no means dissimilar from records based on other modes of communicating information. (Less)
