The TechBC Memory Project: From Summit to Digitized Collections

Resource type
This document describes the process and workflow of the TechBC Memory Project, a collection of oral history interviews that contributes to the historical record of SFU Surrey. The interviews were conducted in 2014 and 2015 and were initially uploaded to Summit, SFU's research repository. In 2016 the PI received a grant for transcriptions and indexing assistance and went on study leave to enhance the interviews' usability and accessibility. The transcripts were edited, indexed, and summarized offline, converted to XML, and uploaded to the OHMS (the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer) application. The collection then moved to SFU Digitized Collections on its new Islandora platform. The interviews now include the OHMS viewer, transcripts and photographs, as well as new searchable metadata fields including keywords, summaries, and a proper name index.
