For music scholars as well as music fans, the Milton and Nelma Fillius Jazz Archive, part of Hamilton College Library's Digital Collections, will appeal. The archive is split into two kinds of resources: interviews and photographs. In the first section, visitors can browse over 300 interviews conducted by composer (and Fillius Jazz Archive Coordinator) Monk Rowe and Hamilton professor Michael Woods. Each interview record includes a full transcript of the interview, accompanied by an audio recording of the interview and a photograph. Interviewees include Be'la Fleck, Herbie Hancock, and Etta Jones, to name just a few. Visitors to this archive can also search for interviews by Topics (e.g. composers, saxophonists, music educators) or Subject Headings (e.g. Jazz festivals, Sound recording industry, Ragtime Music) or by conducting a text search of interview transcripts. Meanwhile, in the Photographs section, visitors can explore hundreds of jazz musicians and bands.
