'The purpose of this project is to expose as many people as
possible to the amazing collection of music available in the world.
This collection focuses primarily on out-of-print music from
eastern Europe: Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and the former
Yugoslavia and the countries that used to be part of it (Slovenia,
Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro / Crnogora, Bosnia and
Hercegovina, and Macedonia). Albums from other regions are included
if they were used for international folk dancing.'

The Folk Song Index: An Oberlin College Libraries & Sing
The project began in 2004 when Kathy Abromeit, Conservatory Public
Services Librarian, called Mark Moss at Sing Out! seeking advice to
start a folk song database at Oberlin. Sing Out! had started such a
database years earlier and agreed to send their database as seed
for a larger collaborative project that the Library would host. The
records that had been entered and sent to Oberlin were from the
Sing Out! Resource Center, a collection of recordings, photos,
books, periodicals and other items, located at the corporate
headquarters of Sing Out! Since that time, Oberlin Conservatory
Library student employees, under Abromeit's supervision, have been
indexing folk song anthologies owned in the Oberlin Conservatory
The index contains over 42,700 entries, and, to date, indexes over
2,000 anthologies. Each entry includes the song title, first line
of chorus, first line of verse, and full bibliographic information
on the source.
