Subject: New Southern Oral History Program digital collection
The Southern Historical Collection together with UNC Libraries is
pleased to present the new Southern Oral History Program digital
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!
