Archiving the Websites of Contemporary Composers

Archiving the Websites of Contemporary Composers, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is a collaboration between NYU Libraries, MIAP, and the Internet Archive's Archive-it service for curating preserved collections of websites. This project aims to re-engineer current web-crawlers so that they can collect streaming audio and video, and to collect, preserve, and make accessible the websites of music composers, with sound and visual quality at a level significantly higher than current web archiving standards.
