Title:Libraries and Archives and the Preservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage: Defining a Research Agenda
Author(s):McDonough, Jerome P.; Kendall, Lori; Bonn, Maria
Subject(s):Intangible Cultural Heritage
Geographic Coverage:North America
Abstract:With the adoption by UNESCO of The Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2003, the preservation of intangible heritage has gained greater international recognition and attention. While the museum community has been deeply involved in cultural heritage preservation efforts, libraries and archives have for the most part not seen this as part of their primary mission. With intangible heritage increasingly threatened, and with the holdings of libraries and archives potentially of great utility in preservation efforts, this is an unfortunate situation. Based on discussions with a number of experts in fields directly relating to intangible heritage, this white paper, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, proposes a research agenda for library and information science aimed at allowing libraries and archives to make more substantial contributions in preserving intangible cultural heritage.
