Brazilian Presidential Transition (2018) Web Archive

Archived since: Dec, 2018

Description:

The Brazilian Presidential Transition (2018) Web Archive is a collection built by the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation and member libraries of the Latin America Libraries of the Northeast Group. Talía Guzman-González (Library of Congress), Sócrates Silva (Columbia / Cornell University Libraries) and Jill Baron (Dartmouth Library) are the project leads, with significant contributions from members of the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials. The Archive comprises Brazilian government websites in the areas of human rights, the environment, LGBTQ issues, and culture, for the period following the election of Jair Bolsonaro as president of Brazil on October 28, 2018, up to his inauguration on January 1, 2019. The collection targets web content considered to be vulnerable due to the anticipated consolidation or elimination in the aforementioned areas, and represents a snapshot of government content before Bolsonaro took office, with the aim of preserving these important, but potentially ephemeral, documents for researchers and scholars.

Contemporary Composers Web Archive (CCWA)

Archived since: Oct, 2013

Description:

The Contemporary Composers Web Archive (CCWA) is a collection developed by the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation's Music Librarians (a collaborative working group including Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, MIT, Princeton, and Yale Universities, and the Universities of Chicago and Pennsylvania). The CCWA is an extension of an existing Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation Music Librarians collaborative collection development agreement identifying approximately 1,500 globally based contemporary composers of sufficient importance to have their published printed works collected at a comprehensive level by at least one participating institution. The agreement defines “contemporary” composers as: 20th-century composers still active in 1975; works by those composers deceased before 1975 but published for the first time in significant new editions after 1975 (optional among members); and composers active after 1975. The Archive aims to preserve for researchers the personal / official websites belonging to these notable contemporary composers in order to assure the continuing availability of the important, and potentially ephemeral content they contain, such as: biography, bibliography, discography, recordings, writings, lists / notices of performances, audio and video performances, photos, press notices, and more.
