Knoxville Oral Histories
Liz Teston, UT professor of Interior Design, is actively collecting oral histories about the changing face of Knoxville’s Market Square over time. She wanted to find a way to showcase her work online, follow best practices for file preservation, and to increase visibility of her research.
Former Scholars’ Collaborative librarian Ashley Maynor assisted Professor Teston with the website design and implementation in WordPress, the preparation of digital objects and metadata for a collection in Omeka, and is currently collaborating on interactive data maps to be added to the site. With the help of the Scholars’ Collaborative, the oral histories research Teston has conducted will later become part of the Libraries’ Special Collections and become part of the Digital Public Library of America.
