OHMS “revolutionary” approach highlighted

UK Libraries was recently featured by an article in the Lexington Herald- Leader: http://www.kentucky.com/2013/06/30/2699101/university-of-kentuckys-oral-history.html . The article highlights the impact of OHMS, (the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer), the open source system developed by the Nunn Center and Digital Library Services.  OHMS connects an online search term to the corresponding moment in an oral history interview and creates the model for hosting oral history interviews in an online repository.  OHMS is currently being prepared for public distribution as part of a National Leadership Grant provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  

Congratulations to everyone involved in this innovative project!
