The Uysal-Walker Archive of Turkish Oral Narrative is located in the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library at Texas Tech University; it’s a treasure trove of texts, recordings, and who knows what all. The first dip I took into it got me an article by H.B. Paksoy on “Literature in Central Asia”; the main archives include 73 volumes of oral narratives, and there’s a music section as well. I look forward to exploring it further. (Via wood s lot.)
