The Niels Bohr Library & Archives began a National Endowment for the Humanities funded project to digitize its oral history collection and make it available on the Web in June 2007.

The project began its goal of digitizing 500 oral history interviews from our collection and plan to complete it in May 2009. After the completion of the project, the collection will be digitized and added to the web on an ongoing basis.
