Folk Music - Lomax: Research Center The Sound Recordings catalog comprises over 17,400 digital audio files, beginning with Lomax’s first recordings onto (newly invented) tape in 1946 and tracing his career into the 1990s. In addition to a wide spectrum of musical performances from around the world, it includes stories, jokes, sermons, personal narratives, interviews conducted by Lomax and his associates, and unique ambient artifacts captured in transit from radio broadcasts, sometimes inadvertently, when Alan left the tape machine running. Not a single piece of recorded sound in Lomax’s audio archive has been omitted: meaning that microphone checks, partial performances, and false starts are also included. This material from Alan Lomax’s independent archive, begun in 1946, which has been digitized and preserved by the Association for Cultural Equity, is distinct from the thousands of earlier recordings on acetate and aluminum discs he made from 1933 to 1942 under the auspices of the Library of Congress.

Bridge • The Center for MichiganThe Detroit Historical Museum wants your story from the summer of ‘67 What were you doing during Detroit’s 1967 civil disorder? If you had a “significant, first-hand experience” with the uprisings in the last week in July that year, the Detroit Historical Museum wants to hear your story for an oral history project it’s conducting in the run-up to the riot’s 50th anniversary next summer. The Detroit museum will have interviewers on hand to record your recollections this Saturday, Aug. 20, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The stories will become part of the museum’s “Detroit 67: Looking Back to Move Forward,” which seeks to assemble a record of what Detroiters and suburbanites were doing during one of the most momentous weeks in Detroit’s 315-year history. More than 200 people already have recorded their histories, which can be read here. “We want to make them accessible to the public and to have it as a source for scholars who are writing about this period,” said Tobi Voigt, the museum’s chief curatorial officer. “I says, ‘Boss, you better get out there.

101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication: How researchers are getting to grip with the myriad of new tools. There has been a surge of new scholarly communication tools in recent years. But how are researchers incorporating these tools into their research workflows? Jeroen Bosman and Bianca Kramer are conducting a global survey to investigate the choices researchers are making and why. Insights from these surveys will be valuable for libraries, research support, funders, but also for researchers themselves. Are we witnessing a major overhaul of scholarly communication rules and tools? In the last six months alone, this blog has featured posts on all phases of the research cycle.

Ossian Sweet defied segregation. Now his Detroit home will be a museum. | Bridge Magazine The all-white jury couldn’t reach a verdict, and Frank Murphy, a future U.S. Supreme Court justice, declared a mistrial. After Henry Sweet was acquitted by another all-white jury, the charges against the rest were dismissed. ‘Transference of authority’ Baxter’s parents, William and Ruby, bought the house in 1958 for $15,000 after his mother recalled seeing it in a dream. Over the years, the home attracted interest from the media and, in 1975, Baxter’s father turned down an interview from a local newspaper about Sweet because of a past misquote. “When that happened, it was a transference of authority from my dad to me,” Baxter said. Baxter has traveled across the country over the years, hosting talks about Sweet, his legacy and his experiences of growing up in the house on Garland. The first phase of the restoration should begin in April, with planned updates including restored electricity, piping and furniture. Over the years, the neighborhood has deteriorated. Tragedy also followed Sweet.
