The Great American Songbook Archives and Library exists to preserve the physical artifacts of the Songbook so that current and future generations can experience them. It is the only facility dedicated to preserving the Great American Songbook and much of the processing is done by a core of faithful volunteers. The archives and library houses hundreds of books, thousands of sound recordings, and tens of thousands of arrangements and pieces of sheet music.
