  • All back issues of all AFS Section publications
  • 55 syllabi and teaching materials for the field of folklore studies in the Teaching Resources Collection
  • Annual Meeting Programs (1949-2010) and Reports of AFS Annual Meetings (1889-1948)
  • Best Practice and Case Study Reports (2010-2012), funded by the Folk and Traditional Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts
  • Professional Development Publications (2003-2006), sponsored by AFS and the Fund for Folk Culture, with funding from the Folk and Traditional Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
