  • Presentation by Roeland Ordelman (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) and Max Kemman (Erasmus University Rotterdam) at CLARIAH meeting 11 September 2013
  • Oral History data is like a sea full of content
  • But, we need tools to cover up the gems from this sea
  • In CLARIAH, we sail towards a durable infrastructure for Oral History research
  • So far, efforts have been made with the VerteldVerleden platform
  • Why do we need to preserve Oral History? First, because Oral History provides ego-documents for the future
  • Second, witnesses of major 20th century events will be lost after the next decade
  • But, preserving and providing access to this material is a challenge
  • With technological advances, we can overcome these challenges
  • But, to be really usable, technological engineers and scholars in the humanities need to collaborate
  • By collaborating, humanities scholars can provide feedback on technological advances, and engineers can better accommodate the needs of potential users
  • Then, technological tools to provide access to Oral History content can align with practices of potential usersIn the Oral History Today project, we focused on two stages of scholarly research: 1) exploration and selection, and 2) research of that selection
  • Some highlights:The OHT (Oral History Today) search system allows exploration by collection, by keywords, and search through a search box
  • With facets, search results can be refined
  • Search results can be visualized according to facets to provide an overview of the material found. Mainly helpful for more visually-oriented searchers
  • Relations can be found between different collections
  • Interviews can be bookmarked and annotated at the interview- and fragment-level
  • These bookmarks and annotations can be shared with peers and for enhanced publications
  • To demonstrate the interface, we present the character Sandra. For Oral History Today we interviewed 15 scholars in the Humanities, Sandra’s characteristics are a summary of the group of scholars we interviewed.Mainly important is that though Sandra is interested, she is not too knowledgeable of Oral History collections and has not used these before for research
  • The landing page allows for exploring by collection or searching directly for terms.A word cloud provides an overview of topics available
  • Sandra searches for migration indonesia, her topic of research, and finds 903 results
  • To gain a better overview of material available, she creates a visualization
  • The word cloud provides an overview of topics available in the search results. She can focus on geboorteplaats (birthplace), tongar, jakarta, ambon, etc. She thus has many possibilities for exploration at her disposal
  • For now, she chooses a single path for exploration. She chooses to select Ambon, which prioritizes the search results with “Ambon” and brings those search results to the top
  • However, she still has 903 search results, she can make this smaller by refining with the facets (on the left)
  • She can also visualize these facets to gain an overview of all search results. She can for example quickly see that most search results are from a single collection
  • She decide to refine the search results by the spatial coverage and chooses Ambon
  • She now has 30 search results left, and a different word cloud which shows topics of moluccans, world war 2, repatriation and civil war
  • She selects the topic civil war to prioritize this topic and rank the search results accordingly
  • She can now view the search results and finds many male perspectives on war and Ambon
  • As she’s also interested in female perspectives, she looks at collections and finds a collections with female interviews. She refines the search results to only show these female and sees two interviews she can watch immediately
  • She can watch the interview
  • And see more metadata about the topics. Moreover, there is a word cloud on the interview-level giving an overview of what the interview is about. For interviews with speech-recognition, this word cloud also shows topics extracted through speech recognition
  • She can find links to other collections by looking at the summaries of related interviews
  • Interesting bits and pieces from the interview can be bookmarked and annotated, she saves this in her workspace
  • Where needed, she can directly jump to the original archive where the interview is preserved
  • Having bookmarked the interesting bits, she can now look at the other search results
  • As she has little time left for now, she can bookmark search results and annotate these for later analysis
  • When the interview is not available within the OHT search interface, a link it provided to the original archive where the interview is preserved
  • Her bookmarks are kept in separate workspaces, allowing multiple projects
  • This workspace on Ambon women shows several fragments and interviews. She can publish this workspace to share it with peers or provide it together with a publication
  • When she returns to the OHT interface later, she can retrieve her query history, so she can continue where she was left
  • Evaluation with scholars was generally positive. Scholars saw the potential of exploring Oral History collections
  • Several challenges were overcome, but new challenges will need to be addressed in future projects
  • The OHT research team
