How Can I Help?

A few hours a week can make a huge impact on our ability to process the music in a timely manner.

Some of the ways that volunteers have helped in the past...

  • unpacking new shipments of recordings as they arrive,
  • sorting incoming recordings by media type and genre,
  • translating record labels (from Hebrew and Yiddish into English),
  • checking incoming recordings against the list of recordings already in the collection,
  • providing help with fundraising events,
  • writing album notes and reviewing information found on album jackets.
