Mission Statement

The Dartmouth Digital History Initiative (DDHI) aims to develop new digital methods and tools to improve the accessibility and utility of oral history archives. We seek to create tools that will enable users to organize, explore, and visualize the wealth of data about the past contained in oral history collections. DDHI tools will be open-source and easy-to-use. The DDHI is committed to collaboration with user communities to ensure that our tools and our work will promote best practices regarding the creation, preservation, and use of oral history archives.
