I am working with a small manuscripts collection of dance
ethnomusicology called the Cross-Cultural Dance Resources in
Flagstaff, Arizona.  The holdings are quite vast in terms of the
variety of materials and the resources quite limited.  Presently,
there is an anthropology student <acs22 [at] dana__ucc__nau__edu> who is
interested in working with 9 iron metalophones and idiophones that
are held in the collection. They are from West Africa of unknown date
of origin.  They were collected in the 1960's.  Most are in stable
physical condition although two exhibit cracks and losses.  The
student would like to clean the rust off the instruments and would
like advice on how to do this and how to best preserve them once
they are clean.
