Webinar: Introduction to OHMS (October 26, 2020)
The Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS) is a free and open source web-based system designed to enhance access to online oral history. OHMS connects the textual search term in a transcript or an index to the corresponding moment in the recorded interview. Now being utilized by institutions and individuals around the world, OHMS was designed to be an easy-to-use solution that can be implemented using a variety of content management systems, from WordPress or Omeka to more complex digital library platforms. From the beginning, OHMS was designed with simplicity, affordability, and sustainability in mind, providing individuals and institutions with a powerful option for enhancing online access to oral history.
