• Meaningful and accessible digital oral collections

    I am working on providing web-based access to several oral history collections and would be interested in trading ideas about how best to make these materials as useful as possible for researchers, scholars, teachers, and students.  There are many approaches to providing meaningful access to this collection domain — some previously mentioned by other campers (Will Cowen and Megan McCullen).  But how can we afford to annotate the content, generate metadata, and link the histories to curriculum benchmarks?  How can we afford not to do this when the consequence might be that our target audiences can’t find these rich resources.
