Frontera project receives two new grants
The Arhoolie Foundation is excited to announce that we have just received generous grants from the Grammy Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities to continue our digital preservation of the Frontera Collection of Mexican American Records. The Frontera project has already digitized over 90,000 recordings from 78’s, 45’s and cassettes. This new funding will allow us to digitize the LPs and rare master tapes in the collection. These will be available on line through the UCLA Digital Library’s Frontera website.
We are especially grateful for the ongoing support that both of these organizations have given us over the life of this project. Our work would not be possible without them.
