Jamie Wheeler, an A&S professional advisor, is a 2012 recipient of the University of Kentucky's Ken Freedman Outstanding Advising Award, which is given each year to one professional and one faculty adviser. Candidates for the award are nominated by UK's student body, and this is the second year in a row a professional advisor within A&S has received the honor. A&S professional advisors work with more than 300 students each, with each focusing on a particular academic community.
Doug Boyd is the Director of the Louie B Nunn Center for Oral History, part of the University of Kentucky Libraries. The great thing about oral history is its subjectivity and content; the not-so-great thing about it is that most of it is in analog format, un-transcribed, and time-consuming for researchers to use. Boyd and his team have been working diligently on software known as the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer, which will enable users to synch up transcribed interviews to their place in an audio or video recording.
