SPOKE is the Nunn Center's online collection catalog. This online resource is where you go to search our oral history project and interview records. These records tell you what we have in our collection and how to obtain access to the information that you are looking for. Many of our archived projects and interviews have not yet been digitized, transcribed or available (in digital form) online at this time. We are working on digitization of interviews on an ongoing basis. If an interview is not yet digital, it does not mean that the interview is not accessible. Once requested, we will digitize interviews and work with you to identify the best mode of making the interviews available to you.
