Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to discuss the use of GLIFOS Social Media Manager in the “Capturing our stories” Oral History Program of Retired/Retiring Librarians. The goal of the “Capturing our stories” project is to record the life histories and disseminate and interpret these stories as lessons for other librarians. GLIFOS Social Media is a means by which the interviews are interpreted and disseminated.
Design/methodology/approach – The paper describes the “Capturing our stories” oral history program of retired/retiring librarians, GLIFOS Social Media software, and how GLIFOS is used to transcribe and add rich-media capabilities to the “Capturing our stories” interviews.
Findings – GLIFOS is a useful tool for making the videos of the “Capturing our stories” program searchable, accessible, and more meaningful to viewers. It liberates video from the visual format to enable more manipulation of the data and use of the content.
Practical implications – The ability to search and add rich-media capabilities to video is vital to making the vast amount of data and content in video searchable, accessible, and meaningful.
Originality/value – The paper describes a proprietary, wiki-based software application (GLIFOS) for adding rich-media capabilities to video.
