I’ve been doing events, marketing and volunteer recruiting related (volunteer) work for the Rock amp; Roll Library since January. They’re a non-profit based in Boston working to build the world’s largest music information archive while promoting the use of popular music in education. It’s a very ambitious organization and they’ve already accomplished quite a lot including a national song lesson contest with Melissa Etheridge.
Early 2003 has been focused on finishing the business plan and expanding the sponsorship program. And right now the Rock Roll Library needs your help to raise funds to attend the Music Museum Association’s annual meeting March 28-30, 2003. The 3-day event is the gathering place for music museums and archives across the United States to share best practices and development ideas. Members of the association include the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame, The Grateful Dead Museum and the Experience Music Project.
So, if you’re wondering how you can help, visit the Rock amp; Roll Library’s website and learn more about the event! You can become a charter member, make a donation and shop the new giftshop. While you’re there, take a sneak peak at the Music Archive Database, a very ambitious project that is shaping up to be the definative source for music information on the Internet.
