Scanning project makes piano works available

August 29, 2018
by Ray Heigemeir

A pilot project in the Music Library to digitize sheet music and make images available in the SearchWorks catalog has produced its first collection, made up of 140 piano arrangements and transcriptions. Basic records for these items have long been in SearchWorks, and are now greatly enhanced with access to the digital images and options for close examination and download. This collection was chosen for scanning because the paper is too brittle to withstand the handling that results from practice and performance.

by Glen Worthey

Have you ever wondered about the scope, extent, and style of Digital Humanities activities going on in Europe, and how our DH work in the U.S., and particularly at Stanford, compares?  Are you interested in learning more about DARIAH, the major pan-European infrastructure for activities in Digital Arts and Humanities?  Do you have a DH project or idea of your own, and want to hear about what other projects and working groups are doing, both in California and beyond?

Join us September 13th through 15th, 2018, in Stanford’s Green Library, for a 3-day workshop on “Sustainable Infrastructures for Digital Arts & Humanities” to learn more.
