Indexing Oral Histories Tutorial
CAZENOVIA » Archivist Elisha Davies will lead a tutorial on the indexing of recorded oral histories on Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. in the Community Room at Cazenovia Public Library.
The Oral Histories — conducted in the late 1980s by Town Historian Peg Ladd — include interviews with notable members of the town. The recordings include reference to the narrators’ childhoods in Cazenovia, educations, early careers, and community involvement, as well as accounts of notable Cazenovia events/ memories. The digitized interviews will eventually become available online at NYHeritage.org — an online research site featuring collections from cultural institutions across New York State.
Following the tutorial, participants will be able to access the interviews and index the content from home. Participants must have basic computer skills. For information, call (315) 655-9322 or visit www.cazenoviapubliclibrary.org.
