    Call 1993 

    The New Museum has found a new way to bring an oral history collection to life. In their project “Recalling 1993” pedestrians can pick up pay phones throughout Manhattan and be “transported” back to 1993. The oral histories played through the phones are site specific and can even be about the very block that the phone is located on.

      Speaking of Oral Histories…..The Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries and the UK Libraries Division of Library Technologies have created a web-based, system called OHMS (Oral History Metadata Synchonizer) . The OHMS is cost effective and efficiently enhances access to Oral Histories on the web.

      Also, there is a BLOG called “Visualizing the Past” which features Graphs, Maps, and Trees: Imagining the Future of Public Interfaces to Cultural Heritage Collections.

      The thing that I love about this is how simple it seems. It’s something that could be replicated in any city, in a variety of ways. It also produces content (the recordings) that can live on after the project is over. It uses what is already there in the community and transforms it, creating a nostalgic experience for those who remember NYC in 1993 (ahem) and those who weren’t in the area or weren’t yet a twinkle in their parents’ eyes. I like to think that even when the installation is over, it will have changed the way the participants view the city.

    Sepia Town 

    Sepia Town is a website similar to History Pin. It might be worth taking a look at.

    Hello everyone,
    Maggie and I are planning on doing a case study on memory institutions that utilizes a cross cultural approach. We’re thinking of comparing examples of Caribbean, European, and non-Western institutions. If anyone is interested in joining us, please let us know.

      One of the digital libraries that we are considering for our project is the Cuban Heritage Collection from the University of Miami. This collection is considered the most comprehensive repository of Cuban culture in exile. Its content covers from colonial times to the present. One of its biggest challenges, for the last five decades, has been the acquisition of materials produced in Cuba, particularly from the non-official press. If you are interested in knowing more about this collection, check it out: http://library.miami.edu/chc/index.html
