The Music Library Association is pleased to announce the receipt by the MLA Archives of primary source materials.

The Music Library Association is pleased to announce the receipt by the MLA Archives of primary source materials from the landmark publication Resources of American Music History: A Directory of Source Materials from Colonial Times to World War II (RAMH). Published in 1981 by the University of Illinois Press, RAMH was edited by D. W. Krummel, Jean Geil, Doris J. Dyen, and Deane L. Root. The materials, which were in Krummel's possession, were placed in the archives for safekeeping.

Bonnie Jo Dopp, curator of the MLA Archives, notes, "The RAMH archives documents the history of this monumental project. It contains files on all the libraries and repositories, state by state, that were surveyed; administrative files such as minutes of meetings, grant proposals, mailing lists, publicity materials, and memoranda of decision making; and texts of talks given by the editors about the project while it was in progress."

MLA's archives are housed in Special Collections in Performing Arts, a department of the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library at the University of Maryland, College Park. Accessions inventories of the RAMH archives exist, and the collection may be used by visiting researchers in the Irwing and Margery Morgan Lowens Room for Special Collections weekdays from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM by appointment with the curator. Persons with questions about the RAMH archives, or any other aspect of the MLA Archives, may e-mail the curator via the Web site at www.lib.umd.edu/PAL/SCPA/scparefreqform.html.
