Key Survey Findings:

Common Folklore Archiving Issues and Selected Resources (for addressing them)

CSUMC’s 2005-2006 “Survey of Public Folklore Collections in the Upper Midwest” identified five major problems that folklorists and archivists regularly encounter when attempting to preserve and use documentary collections. We have listed and summarized them here, and have provided suggestions for addressing each problem, with links to varied resources which might be of help. We are especially pleased to publish links to folklore resources as well as helpful guides prepared by expert folklorist-archivists Steve Green and Marcia Segal. We invite viewers to furnish similar guidelines and help us refine and build a better resource by identifying and recommending additional links. KJB & JCG 7/09
