OCHS has entered into an agreement with the OSU Library's Oral History Research Program. OSU will be conducting interviews with Oklahoma conservationists and collect oral histories that will be archived at the OSU Library (audio and video). The collection is called the Oklahoma Conservation Heritage Collection. To date there have been three interviews completed with two more scheduled in March.

OCHS has been working with the Oklahoma State Department of Libraries on a project to digitize all the soil surveys that have been done in Oklahoma since state hood.

The other priority project for OCHS is to develop a museum quality traveling exhibit on the history of conservation in Oklahoma that can be used by conservation districts and local museums around the state.
