from the Stanford News

“Some of the earliest pages from the World Wide Web have been restored and are once again browsable, providing a glimpse of how the web once operated. Stanford Libraries has made these pages available with Stanford Wayback, a customized version of an open source platform that enables long-term access to archived web assets.”

Stanford acquires extensive 19th and 20th century music collection

from the Stanford Daily

“Stanford’s Music Library recently acquired the Denis Condon Collection of self-playing pianos and more than 7,500 music rolls, some of which are recordings of late 19th-, early 20th-century composers playing their own music. Members of the Department of Music are collaborating with non-Stanford specialists to restore the reproducing pianos and digitalize rolls through an initiative called The Player Piano Project.”
