Our Washingtoniana Collection recently received a grant to establish a DC Punk Archive from the Institute for Museum and Library Services! The DC Punk Archive will be just one part of a comprehensive DC Music Archive in Washingtoniana.
We are currently accepting donations of collections related to the D.C. punk scene—photographs, fliers, recordings, etc.— and recruiting volunteers to help process and digitize collections.
The grant will allow us build a library of recordings. Do you have some thoughts on what should be in it? Let us know!
