    Friday, February 7, 2020 from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM (EDT)

    Workshop participants will get a comprehensive introduction to OHMS and its capabilities, then focus on the process of getting started using OHMS, the creation of new records, synchronizing transcripts, and indexing interviews, as well as the installation and configuration of the OHMS Viewer. The workshop will discuss both practical strategies for integrating OHMS into archival workflows and the utilization of OHMS by oral history projects outside of the archive. Finally, the workshop will look at different implementations of OHMS and provide a space for workshop participants to discuss and to ask questions. 

    The workshop will be led by Dr. Doug Boyd, director of the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History in the University of Kentucky Libraries. Boyd envisioned, designed, and implemented OHMS.
