Language of Materials



The Music Organization collection is an artificial collection; artificial collections are created by Archivists bringing together multiple smaller acquisitions to the archives from multiple creators, and organizing them based on their subject. This is unlike most archival collections which are organized by provenance, meaning by the original creator, and which maintain the original creator’s arrangement of the collection. The Music Organization has been arranged in alphabetical order by organization name.
