The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage is home to the Ralph Rinzler Folklife Archives and Collections. The Rinzler Archives houses two major collections. One collection is the Moses and Frances Asch collection, which consists of original recordings, business records, correspondence and photographic material which came to the Smithsonian with the purchase of Folkways Records in 1987. The recordings on the Paredon, Cook, Dyer-Bennet, Fast Folk, and Monitor labels have since been acquired by the Center.

Listening copies of most of the catalog are kept in the archives, available to researchers. The archives also has a strong collection of world ethnic music traditions, early country music and bluegrass, blues, and the Folk Revival on other labels available for in-house listening and research.
