The Section's annual business meeting is followed by a presentation on the SAA Oral History Project Digital Collection by University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee project intern Treshani Perera. She discusses processing the audiovisual records and developing the digital collection, with special emphasis on the workflows used to create metadata, index recordings, and present the records online with the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS). (A montage of highlights from the collection is on display on Level 2 throughout the conference.) The “floor” is then open to attendees’ questions and an opportunity to share your experiences working with oral history collections.
