Archives and Library Section (student)

Item Options
Price: $5.00
Quantity: *
The Section's mission is to promote the exchange of information on all types of archival methodology relating to folklore, folklife, and other ethnographic collections. In addition, the Section aims to share information and to help develop standards relevant to library collections and activities in folklore. The Section has maintained a particular interest in the developing technological systems that can advance the work of archivists and librarians working with folklore materials, and improve collections management in the field.

The Section awards two prizes on an every-other-year basis: the Brenda McCallum Prize for a work that contributes to the goal of improving archival care and access to folklore collections, and the Grimshaw Prize for the support of folklore or ethnomusicology projects with a significant connection to libraries and/or archives.
