The Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky Libraries has created a web-based, system called OHMS (Oral History Metadata Synchronizer) to inexpensively and efficiently enhance access to and discovery of oral history online. The OHMS system provides users word-level search capability and a time-correlated transcript or index connecting the textual search term to the corresponding moment in the recorded interview online. The OHMS system is free and open-source and currently being used by over 100  archives in six different countries.


For more information about using or implementing OHMS for your institution, visit the OHMS website at http://www.oralhistoryonline.org
