The Eleanor G. Locke Music Resource Center is the reference library of HNU’s Kodály Center for Music Education created by Eleanor G. Locke and faculty and students at the Center.
The Center houses a renowned folk song collection that has been declared an archive by the Library of Congress. This special collection, representing major and minor regional and ethnic groups in the United States, is uniquely organized according to pedagogical content and has proved invaluable to teachers who come to select songs for teaching musical skills through singing. Over 500 songs are now online (American Folk Song Collection) and feature scores, recordings and game instructions. These songs are freely available to all.
The Eleanor G. Locke Music Resource Center is open for the public to use for research.
