The work to create this digital database started in May 2022, when the project Creation of the Digital Database of the Songs of the SASSA IE was launched, financed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Serbia.

During the presentation of the digital database of the Folklore Collection of the SASA IE, the archival folklore collection of the SASA IE will be presented to the attendees, and the authors of the database will share their experiences of the work involved in its creation. Those interested in using the database will be given guidelines regarding the types of searches enabled by the web application for accessing the database.
