Voices of Change II: Bringing Radio Haiti Home

Enhanced description of nearly 4,000 audio recordings in the Radio Haiti Archive and a pilot project to test more effective access channels for Haiti and other underserved areas.

Voices of Change II: Bringing Radio Haiti Home, a twelve-month, $85,753 project at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University, will result in the enhanced description of the Radio Haiti Archive and a roadmap for repatriating the Archive’s 5,300 audio recordings to Haiti. The Radio Haiti team will create detailed, trilingual description for all the recordings, vastly improving the ability to search the individual programs and making the collection more accessible to those who do not speak Haitian Creole. They will also complete a pilot to explore whether YouTube, Internet Archive or a low-bandwidth version of the Duke Digital Repository would provide the most effective access for people in Haiti and other underserved areas. Voices of Change II provides far-reaching access to a singular archive of information and voices and provides a model for the repatriation of other such displaced archives.
