Build a Home for Our Rounder Records Collection
The Cambridge Historical Society is housing more than 2,300 individual Rounder titles on site. The collection is believed to be the entire run that the label released on CD. The Rounder Records collection at the Cambridge Historical Society is being archived and cataloged with the assistance of James O'Brien, Ph.D. Our goal is to raise $3,800 to create a long-term archive at the Cambridge Historical Society building on Brattle Street.

What is Rounder Records?
A trio of university students founded Rounder in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1970. It quickly became the major independent label for bluegrass and folk, and recorded a lot of blues, reggae, and world music.
This historically significant musical catalog deserves archival sleeving and a research-friendly shelving system to allow scholars and enthusiasts to explore the decades of music that it contains. The Society is prepared to take that step, but it needs your help.
