Nunn Center for Oral History is currently developing the Online Oral History Projects Initiative, to offer searchable, full text transcripts on the Kentuckiana Digital Library syncing text form the transcripts to the corresponding audio and video. Begun in 1973, the Program preserves the history of Kentucky and of the University by means of oral history interviews . . . . The Program concentrates on twentieth century Kentucky history with an emphasis on political history, Appalachia, Kentucky writers, and agriculture.
