New online collection: Lowell Folklife Project (Library of Congress)

Library of Congress: New online collection: Lowell Folklife Project. “During the year-long field research period in Lowell, a team of fieldworkers produced ethnographic documentation consisting of close to 200 hours of sound recordings, around 10,000 black and white negatives (35mm, 120mm, and 4×5 inch), and about 3500 color slides. These audio-visual materials are now online, alongside almost 24 hours of sound recordings made by Lowell residents, which were copied during the project, and which feature musical events and oral history interviews. Other collection materials also online include field notes, reports, interview transcripts, and logs for audio recordings and photographs. Ultimately, all of the fieldwork documentation supported the central theme of the project: the creation and maintenance of community space.”
