The Columbia University Center for Oral History (CCOH) is one of the world’s leading centers for the practice and teaching of oral history. CCOH achieves its mission from the union of the Columbia Center for Oral History Research (CCOHR) and Columbia Center for Oral History Archives (CCOHA).

CCOHR is housed at the Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics (INCITE), where it administers an ambitious research agenda with the goal to record unique life histories, document the central historical events and memories of our times, provide public programming, and to teach and do research across the disciplines.

The Columbia Center for Oral History Archives is housed at the Rare Book & Manuscript Library in Butler Library and is open to all. At over 10,000 interviews, the CCOH Archives is one of the largest oral history collections in the United States.
