American Music Creators Web Archive

Launched in 2018, the American Music Creators Web Archive is an ongoing collection from the Library of Congress. The archive features web content published by "musicians, performers, and composers contributing to the American music scene." Both mainstream and independent musicians are included in the collection, as well as musicians from a variety of genres (such as jazz, hip hop, and EDM). While the collection is still a work in progress, readers can view dozens of current archived materials under the Collection Items tab. The panel on the left hand side allows visitors to narrow by contributor and subject, among other filters. Each record for an archived website has a detailed item annotation with a brief summary and information on the featured artist or group's genre and form. Users can explore an archived website by clicking on the image at the top of the record then selecting a date on the subsequently displayed calendar. Material acquisition is ongoing, so readers may want to check back routinely to browse new additions. If you enjoy this archive, you may want to check out the Library of Congress's similar collections, including American Choral Music and Early American Sheet Music.
