Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone else was considering managing and cataloging an ongoing oral history project in ASpace.  At Intrepid we are considering how we could use ASpace to catalog oral histories on an item-level, and maybe publish them through the public interface.  Considerations include how we might link up some of the various digital files.  Maybe each oral history gets a Resource record, and under it is a Digital Object that has the AVI and MP4 file versions, with another Digital Object under the Resource record for the transcript PDF.  We are also thinking about how various parts of the project's process could be tracked in the Resource records and/or through Events- interview planning, signing of paperwork, completion and approval of transcription, etc.   If anyone has a similar project or would like to discuss these ideas, any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you,
