CLEVELAND – Rock and roll history lives on in Cleveland in the library and archives of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Everything from setlists to original lyrics and even posters hanging on the walls during concerts.

“Anyone who wants to come and do some research or just want to learn more about music – or listen to music here, watch videos can do that, you just need to make an appointment,” said the museum’s senior director Andy Leach. .

The museum is also digitizing the archives for viewing in their online catalog.

“When [the archives] are digitized, they become more accessible to more people, ”said Justin Seidler, an image archivist.

The archive library also helps in working with inductees to design their induction screens.

Cleveland is currently gearing up for the limelight, preparing to host performers for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction on Saturday; Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Lionel Richie will take the stage at the ceremony.
