“By archiving these on the Web for public access,” Cockrell said, “our hope and expectation is that other librarians and archives will follow suit. It’s a way to get into the music sensibility of a person directly, and we can start to get a profile of what popular music was in a time where many of us think there was no popular music.” Cockrell says the project will focus on cataloging music from the 18th and 19th centuries. “The problem with … cataloging manuscripts like this is that they’re unique,” said Cockrell. “It’s not Bach, Brahms or Beethoven, so people go, ‘Oh, well that’s just common people music. How important are they?’ Librarians and archivists tend to push them in the corner and say they’d like to do something with them one day, but the logistics of taking the time to do are often difficult.” Cockrell said handwritten music books used to be popular. “Instead of buying books, they would keep books they made themselves around, then they would write the book, so they could keep it to play time and time again,” Cockrell said. “These are kind of like a play list on your iPod. They wouldn’t have spent so much time writing the songs down if it wasn’t music that mattered to them.” Lindsay Million, cataloging librarian at the center, said it will be “a big task.” “Sometimes the ink bleeds through pages over time,” Million said. “Or some of it is so old that I may have a terrible time reading it. I’ll, of course, scan that material into our database; it just really limits what information I can include as part of the cataloging process.
