This session describes the challenges and opportunities afforded by an in-house analog to digital audio pilot project centered on the conversion of oral histories gathered by the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky. Our digital conversion process will be outlined, including a description of the workstation designed by the University of Kentucky Digital Programs Department and intended specifically for digitization of oral histories from analog tape. Finally, online delivery of the digitized oral histories will be discussed.
