Increasingly DANS is involved in the curation of a specific kind of qualitative datasets, namely interviews. This paper reports on a number of activities carried out by DANS to collect, manage and disseminate interviews. The first project in which we are engaged is ‘Getuigen Verhalen’ (Telling Witnesses). In this project hundreds of Dutch eyewitnesses to the Second World War will be interviewed. The core collection of interviews will be archived and unlocked by DANS. The project addresses issues of protection of the privacy, sustainable storage of video and audio, documentation of interviews, enrichment of data. The second project, ‘Veteran Tapes VP,’ encourages re-use of qualitative data and experiments with publication of research results. The project aims at the realisation of an ‘enriched publication’ based on a research corpus of transcribed interviews of Dutch veterans. In this project we work together with a group of scholars from a number of scientific disciplines and universities. The researchers implement the concept enriched publication using protocols and tools developed in the project. New projects will focus on advanced disclosure techniques for interviews, in particular speech processing. The paper reports on the results of these projects; the achievements, the problems, and future plans.
