NYSCA New York State Digitization and Folk Arts Website Initiative

Harmonizing New York State's Cultural Resources

While folklorists and cultural institutions have recorded, documented, and stored cultural knowledge – songs, dances, stories, personal histories, etc. – for years, many of these valuable materials have been placed in private archives that are often inaccessible to the communities they document, as well as to the general public.  This project will address the problem of differential access of traditional arts materials through gaining knowledge about how to successfully post things online.
