The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories
[American civil rights movement music at the Center for Popular Music]
Repository: Middle Tennessee State University. Center for Popular Music
Collection Description (Extant): The Center for Popular Music has various resources available for the study of the American Civil Rights Movement. The Center's Reading Room holds secondary source works on the subject, such as books, music scores, videotapes, and DVDs. Original sound recordings, sheet music, music books and song books pertaining to the Civil Rights Movement are also among the Center's special collections holdings. [A] list of some of the materials [is uploaded to this record]. This is only a few of the items, other materials may be found by searching the MTSU Walker Library catalog at http://library.mtsu.edu, the Center for Popular Music's website at http://popmusic.mtsu.edu or emailing the Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Access Copy Note: The center's printed materials are searchable through either the database or the main University Library's catalog. However, only around 8% of the center's sound recordings are cataloged, so it requires a patron contacting the center to find specific items.
