The Tibet Oral History Project (TOHP) team translated and published all 304 interviews videotaped between 2006-2017. Printed copies of these oral histories were delivered to the U.S. Library of Congress (Washington, D.C., United States), Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (Dharamsala, India), and Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama (Dharamsala, India). They were also distributed to over 40 Tibetan communities, universities and libraries worldwide.

TOHP board members, Pema Delek and Tenzin Yangchen, and Executive Director, Marcella Adamski, donated a set of interviews to the Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, which were received by his Secretary, Chhime Rigzing Chhoekyapa.

Faye Straus (second from left), TOHP's Board of Directors President, delivered the collection to Susan Meinheit and Dr. Dongfang Shao at the U.S. Library of Congress, along with Mary Beth Markey (far left), former President of the International Campaign for Tibet.
