Coming from the University of Notre Dame and the UCD MA in Irish Folklore and Ethnology program, Bridie Flaherty, Alex Phillips, Claire Burks, Claire Bosch, Shannon Kelly, Kit Taylor and John Lapin will be working on a number of projects this summer — primarily with ITMA’s audio collections.

These projects include re-housing reel to reel recordings in archival acid-free boxes, creating scans of original recordings that provide context and allow archive users to see what original materials look like, and re-organising phonograph records to make storage and access more manageable.
