      Subject: New Southern Oral History Program digital collection

      Dear all,

      The Southern Historical Collection together with UNC Libraries is
      pleased to present the new Southern Oral History Program digital
      collection:
      http://www.lib.unc.edu/dc/sohp/

      The collection includes metadata records for all 4,000+ Southern Oral
      History Program interviews, though only approximately 1/4 of the
      materials currently have a digital component.

      For those of you familiar with the old SOHP database collection
      (http://www.lib.unc.edu/mss/sohp_interviewee/ ), we made the decision to
      migrate to CONTENTdm in order to be able to mount an increasing number
      of born digital and digitized materials on the Web, as well as to
      increase search capabilities. So far, the new site offers 330 more
      digital transcripts than were previously available online, as well as
      appr. 290 more digital audio interviews. These numbers will only
      continue to grow! The new site also allows users to browse interviews
      based on interviewee ethnicity or occupation, interviewer or
      interviewee, project, or subject.

      The site is still a work in progress so there may be some glitches :-)

      Please take a look, and feel free to give comments or critiques!
