Article: Large Scale Digitization of Oral History: A Case Study

The University of Kentucky Libraries houses the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, which contains more than 6,500 interviews comprising over 12,000 interview hours. Transcriptions have been done of nearly half of the collection. In 2005, Uk embarked on a two-year pilot analog-to-digital conversion project. This article contains details about that project like cost information, what audio frequencies to capture and storage calculations. If you are working with audio, you may want to read/skim/bookmark this article.
