Jennifer K. Sherer (Project Director: July 2017 to present)
Indexing the Iowa Labor History Oral Project

Transcription of 363 oral history interviews from the Iowa Labor History Oral Project and completion of a comprehensive digital index.

Indexing the Iowa Labor History Oral Project is a two-year initiative to transcribe and index oral history interviews from the Iowa Labor History Oral Project, an over forty-year-old statewide oral history collaboration that has to date produced more than one thousand audio interviews with Iowa workers. The grant will fund the transcription and auditing of 363 interviews and the creation of individual (transcript-level) indexes for 326 of these same 363 (excluding those interviews without releases). The grant will also provide for the digitization of an existing print index to over 750 interviews and integrate the 326 new interview indexes to create a complete and expandable ILHOP Digital Index (IDI). Building off an ongoing digitization initiative funded by the National Historical Preservation and Records Commission (NHPRC), the grant will set the stage for future growth, dissemination, and access opportunities for one of the most important resources in twentieth-century Midwestern history.
