Summary
The American Folklife Center, at the Library of Congress, was created in 1976 to "preserve and present American folklife." It incorporates the Archive of Folk Culture, founded in 1928 as a repository for American folk music. The Folklife Center maintains a public reading room and reference service, sponsors concerts and events at the Library, and produces both print publications and published recordings from its collections. The Center initiates field research and also assists ethnographic researchers with an equipment loan program. Online resources include full texts of selected publications; digital presentations of collections; a growing list of links to other resources in ethnographic studies; the Folkline information service, which provides timely information on national events, jobs, and training opportunities in folklife; and the Folklife Sourcebook: A Directory of Folklife Resources in the United States
