NEW ROOTS: Improving Global Access of Latino Oral Histories

Enhancement of public access to a collection of 175 oral histories documenting the migration and settlement of Latinos in the southern United States, particularly North Carolina, from the 1980s to the present.

We seek funding to enhance public access to The New Roots Latino Oral Histories, a collection of oral histories based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that documents the recent migration and settlement of Latinos in the southern United States. The project will enable better management and enhanced access to the oral histories, particularly within Spanish-speaking communities throughout the Americas. We will create a bilingual digital archive and a visually engaging website to connect public audiences to audio recordings, oral history transcripts, and a catalogue in English and Spanish. We will create an online publishing platform that will draw content from a larger repository at UNC Libraries using open source Omeka software. Funding will also support processing and translation of the collection's oral histories into Spanish and English and the creation of materials that will enable public audiences to better use and understand the collection.
