Title: Illinois State Museum: Audio-Video Barn
Url: http://avbarn.museum.state.il.us/
Publisher: Illinois State Museum Society
Description: If you want to explore the world of agriculture in Illinois, you should make a beeline for this interesting and thoughtful website. The Audio-Video Barn is a collaborative project designed by the Illinois State Museum, working in partnership with other local institutions and with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The project is a logical outgrowth of the Museum's "longstanding interest in human interactions with the natural world." So step right into the "barn" and listen to oral history interviews from the 1950s to the 1990s, locate interviews from a state-wide map, or look over the "User's Guide" for navigation tips. Visitors shouldn't miss the "Sit-Down Interviews" area, as they can just scan through photos and select an interviewee who looks interesting. To get started, visitors should check out some of the "Stories from the Barn", such as "My Father the Great Reader" and "Making Rails".
