This project is a collaborative effort between the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History and Digital Library Services. Over the past year, James made many significant contributions to the OHMS project through his technical computer programming skills, thoughtful handling of issues surrounding user interfaces, and collaborative refining of the OHMS delivery of oral history as a complex digital object. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
