Custodial History

The audio recordings of the oral histories were stored by Tamiment staff on Soundcloud. These recordings were downloaded by Archival Collections Management staff in 2020 and transferred to Research Workspace.

The audio recordings of the Think Tank discussions were collected with the cooperation of the Tamiment Library & Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives, who provided digital recorders to OWS members. The oral histories were conducted by Rachel Goodfriend, a Tamiment Library student worker.

Processing Information

One hard drive was forensically imaged and mounted to the Research Workspace (RWS) and four thumb drives were forensically imaged, analyzed, and arranged in Forensic Toolkit (FTK). In RWS, directories were created for each oral history narrator and audio recordings associated with each narrator were moved to the correct directory. In FTK, files were arranged by date of recording and bookmarks were created for each date. Archival objects were created in ArchivesSpace for each bookmark in FTK and each directory in RWS. Digital objects were created to represent the files in the bookmarks and directories and were attached to the correct archival object in ArchivesSpace.

New York University Libraries follow professional standards and best practices when imaging, ingesting, and processing born-digital material in order to maintain the integrity and authenticity of the content.
