The Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries has created an open source web-based system called OHMS (Oral History Metadata Synchronizer) to enhance access to oral history online. OHMS connects the textual search term in a transcript or an index to the corresponding moment in the recorded interview. OHMS has been designed to be easy to use, universally compatible, and extremely flexible. OHMS provides a powerful option for enhancing online access to oral history for institutions with wide ranging budgets and technical support. This workshop will serve as a general introduction to OHMS and will explore, in detail, the processes of getting started using OHMS, indexing techniques, the synchronization of transcripts, the Viewer installation and setup, and general workflows for successfully implementing OHMS at your institution. Refreshments will be provided!
