This research is the first to propose a nationwide protocol, the Community Oral History Collections’ Development Protocol, to develop and manage local community oral history collections in Malaysia. In Malaysia, the shortage of documentation from previous authorities and colonial powers has accelerated the need for oral history to be used as a method to capture valuable untold community stories. This research interprets current oral history practices from the perspectives of oral history practitioners and cultural institution professionals in Malaysia. The Mediated Recordkeeping: Culture-as-evidence model was used to interpret the practices, and the study found ways to extend this model to reflect oral history practices.
