African American Institutional Memory Update - TODAY!

You may be familiar with the African American Institutional Memory project, which focuses on conducting oral history interviews with African Americans who attended Women's College/UNCG in the 1960s. What you may not know is that, thanks to the hard work of recent UNCG graduate Lisa Withers (M.A., museum studies), we have added 16 new interviews to the collection since May!

Join us in the Hodges Reading Room TODAY, August 11th at 2pm to learn more about Lisa's work with the AAIM project this summer. We'll also demonstrate ways in which we're increasing access to these interviews through the use of the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer, and we'll talk a bit about the future of the project and of our institutional memory oral histories in general.
