Digitizing the Collection
The Frontline Diplomacy collection of oral history transcripts were delivered in machine-readable form on CD-ROM. The full text transcriptions were encoded with Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) according to the American Memory DTD. The 1,658 transcripts were converted from text to SGML files. The text was translated with an OmniMark program to HTML for indexing and viewing on the World Wide Web.
Updating the Collection
The Frontline Diplomacy collection will be updated on a yearly basis with transcripts provided by the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training.
