In Portugal, the testimony from agents of the book world has not been given due value.
Contrary to this trend, access is given here to a relevant set of interviews to one of the most singular representatives of this medium in the last half century, the distributor-bookseller-publisher José Antunes Ribeiro, the alma mater of Ulmeiro. A link is also provided for an interview with Lúcia Ribeiro, JAR's wife and bookseller at Ulmeiro and Livrarte, and a founding partner of the latter (by Alexandra Carvalho).
It is another way of valuing and making available primary sources that were previously dispersed and difficult to locate, or even unpublished, such as the interview made by Daniel Melo to JAR in 2017 and of which an audio copy of the 1st part is provided here, as well as the respective technical sheet, summary (main topics) and brief profile of the interviewee, according to the rules of Oral History.
Other primary sources (documentaries and press reports with testimonies from Ulmeiro's mentors and testimonies from Ulmeiro's authors) are organized and accessible in the bibliography resources (see item Learn more), with the documentaries likewise arranged in the Documentaries item, as it seemed to make sense to highlight this set in a medium as the Internet.
