The Department of Folklore Archives is concerned with the collection, management, and preservation of folklore and the publication of research collections and audio recordings. The research fellows of the Department, together with researchers from other folk-lore departments, periodically participate in group and individual field trips to observe and record living folklore. The department is looking for ways to restore old audio recordings and continues transferring them to modern media. Copies are being made of valuable and frequently used manuscript collections. Both recently obtained and previously recorded folklore materials are being catalogued, and computerized databases are being built and constantly updated. The more important Lithuanian folklore manuscripts (18th-20th century), the most valuable audio recordings, and rare previously published materials are being edited for publication.
The Department has prepared a Lithuanian folklore database creation and build-up program and the audio recording preservation and publishing program.
