Collaborative Architecture, Urbanism, and Sustainability Web Archive (CAUSEWAY)

Archived since: Jun, 2014

Description:

The Collaborative Architecture, Urbanism, and Sustainability Web Archive (CAUSEWAY) is a newly launched initiative by the art and architecture librarians at Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale universities, MIT, and the universities of Chicago and Pennsylvania, under the auspices of Columbia University Libraries and Information Services. This project aims to preserve websites devoted to the related topics of architecture, urban fabric, community development activism, public space and sustainability in order to guarantee the continuing availability of 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 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 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.
