Michigan Folklife Resources on American Folklife Center/Library of Congress Website

Michigan information can be found in the "Folklife in Your State" pages now available on American Folklife Center/Library of Congress' website. These pages centralize state-based information found elsewhere on the AFC/LOC site including links to finding aids for each state, the National Sampler Project, Local Legacies projects, Veterans History Project collections, state-based educational resources, and other institutions and organizations arranged by state in the Folklife Sourcebook. Also included are links to webcasts for AFC/LOC's Homegrown Concerts and Botkin Lectures from each state. The main link to these pages is located on AFC's homepage so people visiting us there can immediately find what AFC has from their state. Find the page here: http://www.loc.gov/folklife/states/index.html
