The Buckaroos in Paradise collection includes copy photographs of numerous historical still photographs, works of art, and other objects that are owned by the families or individuals identified in bibliographic records for those objects. The collection also includes audio and video interviews with individuals who consented to the inclusion of these selections here. Researchers or others who would like to make further use of these copy photographs or interviews should contact the American Folklife Center for assistance.
The special character of collections that result from ethnographic field research is outlined in What is an Ethnographic Field Collection?. The American Folklife Center and the professional fieldworkers who carry out these projects feel a strong ethical responsibility to the people they have visited and who have consented to have their lives documented for the historical record. The Center asks that researchers approach the materials in this collection with respect for the culture and sensibilities of the people whose lives, ideas, and creativity are documented here. Researchers are also reminded that privacy and publicity rights may pertain to certain uses of this material.
Copies of materials found in the online collection Buckaroos in
Paradise may be ordered by writing to:
American Folklife Center
Library of Congress
101 Independence Avenue SE
Washington, D.C. 20540-4610
Please specify the items you are interested in having reproduced and how the reproductions will be used. If possible, send printouts of the bibliographic records of the individual items you are ordering. Be sure to include a daytime phone number and a street address (the Library usually sends phonoduplication orders by Federal Express, so a post office box will not be sufficient).
To Order Copies of Still Images
For photoduplication requests, indicate the size, format (slides, negatives, or prints), and finish (glossy or matte) that you are requesting and the Call Number listed near the bottom of the photograph's record in the online collection, e.g., NV8-RA22-2.
In addition, please give your mailing address as well as a daytime phone number or e-mail address. American Folklife Center staff will contact you with information on costs and specific ordering procedures.
To Order Copies of Sound Recordings
For phonoduplication requests, indicate the format (cassette, open reel, or DAT) that you are requesting and the Call Number listed on the interview segment's record in the online collection, e.g, NV81-CF-R6. Please note that you must order the full half-hour reels from which the individual interview segments appearing online have been taken.
The American Folklife Center will forward your order to the Recording Lab. The lab, in turn, will send you a form to sign, indicating that you are taking responsibility for the copies you will receive. You will need to return that signed form together with the estimated pre-payment, and the lab will then schedule the work. The process usually takes from six to eight weeks.
The Library's Recording Lab receives no tax dollars and operates much as though it were a commercial studio in the Washington, D.C. area, with fees set accordingly. As of October 1999, the lab fees are $86 per hour (billable in quarter-hour segments) plus a set-up fee and the costs of tape and shipping. The latter fees vary according to the format you choose.
To Order Copies of Moving Images
The forty-one moving images in this online presentation have been selected from extensive film and video footage. An edited master (with a total running time of 1:22:01) containing only the footage featured online has been created.

The American Folklife Center will forward your order to the Recording Lab for duplication.
