Jim Duncan from the Colorado State Library has asked me to pass this list along to the Alliance listserv.
There is power in the human voice to create images, shape perceptions, and inform. Oral histories capture this unique aspect of humanity, bringing stories to life and building collective memory-but archives, museums, libraries, and historical societies struggle with how to manage and share oral-history interviews.
Colorado Voice Preserve is a collaborative effort that addresses part of this challenge by developing a shared infrastructure and repository. Planning is already underway, and we would like to hear from you regarding oral-history interest, activity, and needs.
Please visit the survey link below. All we ask is 3-5 minutes of your time. Please respond by March 30.
