National Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA 01002-3375)
Christa Whitney (Project Director: July 2016 to present)
Yiddish Book Center Wexler Oral History Project

The Yiddish Book Center's Wexler Oral History Project seeks funding to enhance access to its growing digital collection of oral history interviews about Yiddish language and culture in the non-ultra-orthodox Jewish community. We propose a project with four components: 1) preparation of extant indices for public viewing; 2) standardization of metadata through creation of controlled vocabulary lists and compliance with an internationally accepted metadata schema (MODS or other); 3) transcription of all of our English-language interviews; and 4) integration of transcripts, indices, associated materials, and metadata into the public viewer experience on our website, utilizing the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS) viewer.
