Abstract The joint oral history project of the National Library of Australia and the Australian Paralympic Committee focuses on interviews with Australians who have contributed greatly to the Paralympic Movement in Australia since the inaugural Paralympic Games of 1960, while also recognising their place in the larger social and cultural context. This article describes and discusses how the project evolved, the methodology and accessibility of the interviews, and concludes with an analysis of some of the issues emanating from the interviews with Paralympians.
