Today we are highlighting the Cajun and Creole Music Collection (CCMC).
The CCMC consists of over 9,000 commercial recordings, selected non-commercial recordings, and other music-related research materials.
Formats include both analog and digital media: 78rpm, 45rpm, and LP (33 ⅓) records, 8-track tapes, audio-cassette tapes, CDs, VHS tapes, and DVDs. The expanding collection also contains books, periodicals, photographs, artifacts, manuscripts and other archival materials.
The many different genres and styles of the Creole and Cajun musical cultures of Southwest and parts of Southeast Louisiana can be found in the CCMC.
The CCMC is housed on the 3rd floor with the Ernest J. Gaines Center in Room 380. More information can be found at the Cajun and Creole Music Collection.
