Hemrick Nathan Salley Family Sheet Music

Donated in 2010 by Hemrick Nathan Salley Jr., the Salley Family Sheet Music includes music from the 19th and 20th Centuries. These two bound volumes from the collection each have a distinct focus: one on popular piano music from the mid-1800s, and the other on popular songs for piano and voice from 1899 to 1902 with an emphasis on blackface minstrelsy.

Kayla Burns (MLIS 2011) completed the digitization of the Salley Family sheet music and uploaded into the content management system. Burns scanned the bound volumes on the Zeutschel scanner. Nick Homenda, Music Librarian, created metadata for the collection following Dublin Core Metadata Best Practices. The work could not have been done without the help of Tony Branch, systems administrator for the CONTENTdm database.
