ILAM/Mellon Cataloguing and Digitizing Project
ILAM was awarded a grant from the Andrew P. Mellon Foundation in March 2008 to fund a three year project to run from May 2008 through April 2011. This project is designed to accomplish the following:
Andrew Tracey and Laina Gumboreshumba indexing Tracey's field recordings
The ILAM/Mellon Project will be staffed by a fully qualified sound engineer and a trained sound engineering assistant. They will carry out the cataloguing and digital conversion of the two field recording collections mentioned above. The digital sound files along with the metadata captured for each item will be transferred to the ILAM server where access from the ILAM On-line Sound Archive will be possible.
Hugh Tracey's newpaper clippings scrapbook.
A qualified Archivist/Librarian assisted by a meta-data capturer/cataloguing assistant will be responsible for processing the print holdings. The catalogue of ILAM's print holdings will be stored on the Cory Library Millenium Server, which will afford on-line access through a link from the ILAM website to the Rhodes University Website on-line library database (OPAC).
The project commenced on November 1, 2008 with Ms. Chantel Clack serving as archivist and project supervision being provided by the Cory Library Head Archivist, Mrs. Shirley Kabwato.
