Folkklore Discography
'The purpose of this project is to expose as many people as possible to the amazing collection of music available in the world. This collection focuses primarily on out-of-print music from eastern Europe: Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and the former Yugoslavia and the countries that used to be part of it (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro / Crnogora, Bosnia and Hercegovina, and Macedonia). Albums from other regions are included if they were used for international folk dancing.'

The Folk Song Index: An Oberlin College Libraries & Sing Out! Collaboration.
The project began in 2004 when Kathy Abromeit, Conservatory Public Services Librarian, called Mark Moss at Sing Out! seeking advice to start a folk song database at Oberlin. Sing Out! had started such a database years earlier and agreed to send their database as seed for a larger collaborative project that the Library would host. The records that had been entered and sent to Oberlin were from the Sing Out! Resource Center, a collection of recordings, photos, books, periodicals and other items, located at the corporate headquarters of Sing Out! Since that time, Oberlin Conservatory Library student employees, under Abromeit's supervision, have been indexing folk song anthologies owned in the Oberlin Conservatory Library.
The index contains over 42,700 entries, and, to date, indexes over 2,000 anthologies. Each entry includes the song title, first line of chorus, first line of verse, and full bibliographic information on the source.
