Some of the rarest recordings in the Cajun and Creole Music Collection were acquired through gifts from individuals. The CCMC collects recordings in all formats: 78 rpm records, vinyl (33 1/3 rpm and 45 rpm) records, audiotapes, videotapes, CDs, DVDs, etc.
The CCMC also accepts monetary donations to be used to purchase items for the collection. In addition, donations of music-related personal papers, business records, photograph collections, oral history tapes, etc., are especially welcome.
Join us in our efforts to continue collecting, preserving and providing access to the unique special collections representing our musical cultures. For more information about making a donation to the CCMC, please contact Sandy Himel at 337-482-1174, or write to:
