One of the signature projects for Indiana University’s Bicentennial, the Bicentennial Oral History Project has produced a rich and extensive collection of oral history recordings with faculty, staff, and alumni. This presentation will describe the process of publishing this collection on the web with synchronized transcripts, keyword search, and streaming audio. Supporting software and services used will be detailed, including the Aviary oral history platform, the IU Libraries’ Media Collections Online, and custom scripts to process metadata and transcript information. Details about the information pipeline used to publish this collection on the web will also be discussed, as well as many of the technical considerations made along the way.
