Rescuing Performance Style Datasets

Designed by ACE Archivist and Project Manager, Bertram Lyons, ACE launched a 3-month project to decode seven migrated digital datasets from Alan Lomax’s Performance Style Research. The project is flourishing under the assistance of Mary Haberle, who is an MLIS student at McGill University, where she specializes in Archival Studies. Her interest in working with digital archives led her to a practicum with ACE this summer. Prior to beginning graduate school, she spent several years working in non-profit and advocacy organizations in New York City. Mary was awarded a Joint Honors Bachelor’s degree in History and Religious Studies from McGill University in 2003.
