About the Journal
Theatre Organ: Journal of the American Theatre Organ Society
Archival issues of Theatre Organ are available online through this database thanks to the generous donors that supported the 2017 Thousands Strong Campaign "Help OU Students Preserve the History of American Organs." The project never could have been launched without their support.
Phase 1 of the Theatre Organ Digitization Project – completed in June of 2018 – included planning for digital storage and redundancy, workflow creation, database development, and uploading of the first few issues of the journal.
During Phase II, work will continue to ensure full searchability of the database by September of 2018, complete digitization and accessibility of all archival issues by June of 2019, and the implementation of a vanity URL.
Issues published within the last two years are only available to dues-paying members of the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS). To learn more about joining ATOS, visit the Membership page of their website.
The project is a collaboration between the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) and the American Organ Institute Archives and Library (AOIAL) with significant support from the University of Oklahoma Libraries.
