Musical Periodicals, 1781-1879 AAS
The Musical Periodicals, 1781-1879 collection gathers publications dedicated to various aspects of music, from the sacred to the secular, from the political to the comic. Before widespread use of the printing press in the nineteenth century, the popular culture of the United States was largely an oral one, and much of it revolved around music. Often including related content on the arts, literature, and sometimes science, these periodicals show music in a larger cultural context, as music was also an important leisure activity for families and communities. Representative titles include the Family Minstrel, the Musical Journal, Trumpet Notes: A Monthly Paper Devoted to the Interests of Bands and Orchestras, Aeolian Piano Forte Journal, the Musical Miscellany, the Vox Humana, and the New Yorker Musik Zeitung.,uid&profile=web&defaultdb=mpe

New Orleans Independent Music Digital Collection
From Tulane University's Howard-Tilton Memorial Library:
New Orleans is home to a rich and diverse musical culture, one where the independently released album speaks to and of the local culture as much as the commercially produced album. This project seeks to collect, preserve, and provide access to this rich heritage by creating a platform in the digital environment that allows visitors to learn not only about local indie bands but also about the individual artists and the web of relationships that underlie the local New Orleans musical culture.
