Resources discussed during our presentation:
The session intends to explore opportunities and issues that surround making oral history interviews related to Wounded Knee (1973) available on the WWW through the Digital Library of South Dakota (DLSD). The South Dakota Oral History Center (SDOHC) and the University Libraries, both of the University of South Dakota, are collaborating in a project that’s seeks make some interviews available through the DLSD in a manner that is culturally sensitive, practices sound stewardship of cultural materials, and draws upon best practices and standards for digital libraries. The presenters will discuss the background of both the DLSD and the project, present the project’s progress, and seek to engage the audience in sharing their perspectives.
