The purpose of having you collect folklore for a class is to provide you with firsthand experience with how folklore is identified, collected, and archived. The activity will deepen your personal acquaintance with the living culture to which you belong and make you aware of the many folklore forms that surround you. You may collect from strangers, acquaintances, relatives, or yourself; however, often the best place to start is with people and traditions already familiar to you. The materials that you collect, unless otherwise noted on your collection, will be archived at the Fife Folklore Archives, Special Collections & Archives, Utah State University Libraries.
