Oral history focus on Civil Rights

Earlier this month Dr. Doug Boyd, Director of the UK Libraries Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, served as a speaker and participant in the national leadership forum Lift Every Voice: Collecting, Archiving and Teaching Civil Rights History hosted by the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.  

Funded by IMLS, this national forum is creating a collaborative model for libraries, museums, archives and communities to engage in the documentation, preservation and teaching the history of the Civil Rights Movement.  Dr. Boyd gave two presentations about the Nunn Center's model approach to collection management and digital access.
