Kentucky Folklife Program Archive

The WKU Special Collections Library is now home to the Kentucky Folklife Program Archive. The KFP Archive will be merged with WKU's Folklife Collection already housed in the Kentucky Library.  

The Kentucky Folklife Archive consists of over 150 collections spanning across the Commonwealth of Kentucky and covering over 20 years of research by Kentucky Folklife Program.

This new combined Folklife Archive is one of the most extensive and dynamic archives of culture and folklife in Kentucky.
