Packard Humanities Institute Renews Project Funding

The Packard Humanities Institute has renewed funding for the American Discography Project for another two years, allowing work to continue on the expansion of the Discography of American Historical Recordings. A $500,000 grant will fund acquisitions and keying of Michael Ruppli's Decca discography as well as continuation of the editing of Columbia, Okeh, and Brunswick.

The support also allows staff to continue their support of the Library of Congress National Jukebox, which is expanding the scope of digitized matrial to include all Sony owned pre-1925 catalog including Okeh, Brunswick and Columbia.

The visionary long-term committement of the Packard Humanities Institute to projects like the ADP allow for work like this to be undertaken on a large scale and the UCSB Library is grateful for their continued support.
