Sounds of Home: Local Music Collections & Collecting in Canada
PublisherConcordia University Library's 16th Annual Research Forum
This presentation describes a multi-year SSHRC-funded research study on local music collecting: Sounds of Home: Exploring Local Music Collections and Collecting in Canada. Our research presents a significant opportunity to contribute to the knowledge of how local music is defined in practice. In a world where a major issue is how the local relates to the national, the transnational, and the global, enhanced access to a diverse variety of local music collections will be of great value across a wide range of disciplines in cultural, media, and historical studies.
