Military History Bibliography - Regrouping

First of all, thanks to the dozen or so people who already posted info about their military history OH archives on the old listserv. I'll get those into this system as soon as I figure it out. (As a learning exercise, search for your message). In the meantime, continuing with a suggestion made by Cliff Kuhn about an alternative to collecting info for a bib:


Online public upload of oral history data

I'd be interested to hear from any archives, libraries or oral history programmes which have successfully offered a facility for projects or individuals to remotely bulk-upload original oral history audio content, together with metadata and associated documentation, to a centrally managed archive storage system for long-term preservation and online access. 

Please contact me on- or off-list. Thanks!
