Have you looked at the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, PA, are doing with their amazing music collection? They are doing citizen archivists to catalog and transcribe their collection of music. This includes hymnals, which include shape and round note hymnals.

Do you also collect programs from shape note music performances, recordings, etc… to help give a broader picture?

I'm going to start a digitization project soon and I'm currently thinking through how to name digitized files - what are your rules for file naming for this collection?

Have you shared this out to the Music Library Association community? They may find it useful.

I am beginning a sabbatical this fall with shape note singing as the central study. This was super helpful! Thank you both so much! I will probably be in touch.

Great information. I have a shaped note hymnal that was my father-in-law's and it is a treasure! I can't wait to hear the shaped note singing. I enjoy the primitive hymns like I'll Fly Away with our praise band.

Great workshop. Very informational. Music majors planning to specialize in sacred music should participate in shape note singing.
