Collection Development at DRAM
DRAM's current focus is building and maintaining a core collection of recordings from a distinctive set of small independent labels and archives. Among the many factors that go into the selection process, DRAM gives priority to originality, artistic merit, historical interest, relevance to the existing collection and the opportunity to preserve, restore and disseminate music that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to obtain from any other source.
