Crafting the Core

Answering the call for an Oral History metadata standard

But wait!

Yours is an important voice in this conversation.

I promise.

Nancy MacKay

1. Defines metadata and describes it in categories

2. Outlines challenges of cataloging O.H.

3. Lays out a set of goals for an O.H. metadata scheme

4. Presents survey results about O.H. metadata practices from teams working on diverse projects

5. Suggests people with diverse expertise about O.H. work together to develop the new scheme

Nancy MacKay

Main Points:
So since we're all together...
A friendly mental model for brainstorming:
Think of oral history metadata in terms of the stages of an oral history project.

1.Plan: Information that precedes the actual interview setting
(ex: biographical info about narrator)

2.Collect, Create, Receive & Capture: Information about the event of the interview
(ex: make/model of recorder, name of interviewer)

3.Organize and Describe: Information coming from the processing of the recording
(ex: name of transcriptionist)

4.Use: Information pertaining to the use of the recording
(ex: embargo expiration dates)

5.Disseminate: Information about the terms and uses of the recording
(ex: copyright holder contact information, shelf location)

6.Maintain, Protect & Preserve: Information used to track and preserve the recording (ex: check sums)
To jog our memories within this framework, try asking:

For example:

Project Stage 2. Collect, Create, Receive & Capture:
(Information about the event of the interview)

Who: Name of interviewer
What: Events discussed in interview
When: Date of interview
Where: Address where interview was recorded
Why: Frequent interruptions due to traffic noise
How: Zoom H2 recorder
