Summary/Abstract: The present study brings forward text corpora created by extracting documents from the Folklore Archives of the Romanian Academy. The vast amount of documents, as well as the intellectual effort required to accomplish the printed databases illustrate a distinct scientific project. On the one hand, these text corpora continue the archiving project as it has been defined during the inter-war period, while on the other hand they offer new perspectives on the archived documents and on the whole archiving project. Through this study, we propose a classification of the text corpora published so far. We identified three steps in the completion of text corpora and we showed that each of them responds to certain scientific targets that are defining to the history of the subject, at different moments of its history. At the same time, we illustrated new possibilities to valorize the documents that are archived and comprised in the folklore text corpora.
