Index (see also time log)

To help make an oral history more accessible, one should create a log (or index) of its contents. Akin to a book’s table of contents, which links a chapter to a page number, this document usually links a summary of a small section of the full recording to a timestamp where that summary starts. Different than a word-for-word transcript, the log can serve as an efficient and effective way to unlock the oral history’s contents for current and future users.
