Abstract

For decades, student folklorists have been collecting stories, jokes, and tall tales from their neighbors in our community. This is an integral part of research lives of students as well as an essential collection for those interested in American folklives. This poster explores the design of an online database and preservation process for this collection as well as ongoing digitization efforts to make this work available to larger scholarly communities.
