Meeting Oral History's Challenge: Doug Boyd

Doug Boyd is the Director of the Louie B Nunn Center for Oral History, part of the University of Kentucky Libraries. The great thing about oral history is its subjectivity and content; the not-so-great thing about it is that most of it is in analog format, un-transcribed, and time-consuming for researchers to use. Boyd and his team have been working diligently on software known as the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer, which will enable users to synch up transcribed interviews to their place in an audio or video recording. It will also enable easier use for un-transcribed documents, making access more feasible for researchers and casual listeners alike.
