What has been happening with the Studs Terkel Radio Archive since IASA’s 2015 conference? I would like to catch up the international archival sound community on how we aim to merge metadata, transcriptions and creative re-use into a freely accessible digital platform. First up will be a tour of our back end system called Starchive that allows for easy metadata manipulation, file derivative creation and asset sharing among other features. Next will be a demonstration of the automatic transcription service that includes an open source interactive transcript player. The rest of my presentation will focus on our outreach efforts and hopefully a sneak-peek at our brand new website!
