The creation of an online reference resource for up to 20,000 oral history collections located in over 50 cultural heritage institutions throughout Kentucky.

Pass the Word will survey oral history holdings in repositories across Kentucky, and will create an interactive, online reference tool, which will act as a portal for oral history research in the Commonwealth. Through this project oral history collections and resources in Kentucky will be accessible to multi-disciplinary researchers worldwide. Thousands of personal histories of events, time-periods, communities and families will be easily searchable by anyone online. This online tool will encourage discovery and use of these irreplaceable collections.
