Northwestern: Northwestern Libraries receive NEH grant to digitize significant folk music archive. “Northwestern University Libraries have received a $297,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize, describe, and make available online their Berkeley Folk Music Festival Archive. The archive, meticulously collected by festival founder Barry Olivier, is a culturally significant trove of more than 36,000 items, including photographs, audio and film recordings, brochures, buttons, posters, tickets, and business records documenting the popular festival between 1957 to 1970.”
