From the Piedmont to the Swamplands: Preserving Southern Traditional Music

Preserving and making accessible online up to 3,019 hours of sound recordings and 4,500 related photographs dating from the 1920s to 1980s, drawn from the university's Southern Folklife Collection, that document the traditional music and musicians of the southeastern United States.

The Southern Folklife Collection (SFC) of the Wilson Special Collections Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill plans to preserve and make accessible unique photographs and sound recordings documenting Southern traditional music. For this project, we will create preservation master files and reference copies from materials currently at risk or unavailable for public research. The digitized content will be made available to researchers via CONTENTdm and Variations, an online streaming system developed by Indiana University. Based on prior experience, we expect to preserve and make accessible up to 3,019 hours of audio recordings and 4,500 photographs over the project period.

The Southern Folklife Collection (SFC) of the Louis Round Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill plan to preserve and make accessible unique audio recordings documenting southern traditional music. For this project, the SFC will create preservation master files and reference copies from recordings presently at risk and unavailable for public research. The materials will be processed and cataloged according to national and local standards and be made available to researchers in the Wilson Library reading room. Based on prior audio preservation experience we expect to preserve and make accessible 2350 hours of audio recordings over the two-year period (a ratio of three hours studio time to one hour playtime).

WBTV Film Preservation Survey

Hiring an audiovisual preservation specialist to conduct a comprehensive needs assessment of 804 reels of historic television news film from 1959 to 1981, produced by Charlotte's WBTV, the oldest television broadcasting station in the Carolinas.

The Special Collections Department of the J. Murrey Atkins Library at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte proposes to fund a preservation survey and report for a collection of television news film dating from 1959 to 1981. This important collection consists of 804 reels of film produced by Charlotte's WBTV, the oldest television broadcasting station in the Carolinas. This survey and report will be performed by an expert in the field of audio-visual film, who will work closely with the Department's manuscript librarian. Based on the report's recommendations, the library will develop plans that will ultimately result in preserving, arranging, and describing the films according to the best archival practices and making this valuable collection of local and regional history available to the public via traditional and digital means.
