The presentation will showcase the first oral history collection at AUCA. The team of faculty and students undertook a project to collect testimonies of the Soviet past across the country. The team collaborated with Library and IT Department to archive and to make accessible a collection of selected interviews via the Omeka.
We will talk about project implementation: collecting oral histories; data management and preservation; creating public archive collection; dealing with ethical issues and others. The project is among very few archival initiatives countrywide aiming to preserve and showcase Soviet-era memories through oral histories.
