INDEXING AND EDITING | The Song Collectors Collective. Indexing, Editing and Transcribing Dealing with the Recordings Once recordings have been made it is vital to follow the following-up process of Indexing them as soon as possible, editing out the songs, stories and associated material.

Files need to be as carefully and as thoroughly indexed as possible to make sure they are suitable for research for years to come by a range of people. These people may be; the families themselves and wider Gypsy Traveller communities; Artists (singers, musicians, storytellers, writers, poets etc); Academics (Anthropologists, Historians, Archivists, Folklorists, Medievalists, Herbalists, Magic Scholars, Agriculturalists, Geographers, Librarians, etc); The Humanities (Filmmakers, Radio Producers, Care workers, Educationalists etc) and everyone in between.
