NameBerea College Sound Archives
Parent OrganizationBerea College
DescriptionBerea's non-commercial audio and video collections document Appalachian history and culture, and the history of Berea College. They are especially strong in the areas of traditional music, religious expression, spoken lore, radio programs, oral history, and College events and personalities. These collections include field recordings from homes and churches, local and regional folk festivals, student performances, presentations of notable scholars, preachers, and social activists who have visited Berea.

An ongoing digitization effort is making these audio and video recordings readily available to faculty, students, and the public in Hutchins Library's Department of Special Collections and Archives. Many of these collections have online finding aids. A large and growing sampling of traditional music audio performances are available on line through the Sound Archives search page. Performance video and complete oral history recordings are available on line as well.
