Beginning on March 30th, the Ethnomusicology Archive will be closed as we undertake our much-anticipated renovation and expansion. This will happen in phases. The first phase is preparing our collections to be moved to the new shelving area being built, as we also start to completely empty the current Archive space so it can be remodeled over the summer.
We hope to open the newly renovated and expanded Ethnomusicology Archive early in Fall quarter, and we are already planning a series of events to inaugurate this new space for teaching, learning, and exploring the world through the documents of its musical cultures. In the meanwhile, we will soon be announcing a “farewell to the old Archive” party where you can learn about the renovation project and even take an interactive tour of the new Archive space. Stay tuned!
