N.Y.U. Library Acquires Archive of the Digital Art Journal Triple Canopy

“When libraries acquire the archives of an art and literary magazine, they usually do so after a magazine has been around for decades and the files arrive by truck, in dusty boxes measured in linear feet. But on Monday, the Fales Library and Special Collection at New York University announced the acquisition of the archive of Triple Canopy, the widely admired New York art and literary journal that has been published only since 2007 and only online (if you don’t count a few old-school print anthologies).” (via NYT)

NYU Libraries to Team with Internet Archive to Preserve High Quality Musical Content on the Web

“New York University Libraries is leading a collaboration with NYU’s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) program and San Francisco-based Archive-It, a service of the Internet Archive (IA) to ensure that the websites of musical composers can be collected, preserved, and made accessible today and in the future, with sound and visual quality at a level significantly higher than current web archiving standards. The project, Archiving the Websites of Contemporary Composers, is funded with a grant of $480,000 from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.” (via NYU)

But Felix and I aren’t flanking a breadbasket at a table for two. We’re on the lower level of NYU’s Elmer Holmes Bobst Library near Washington Square Park during the first week of fall term. For the last seven months, Felix has called this glorious, 12-story structure designed by Philip Johnson home, which is not to say that he’s a nerdy graduate student solely focused on scholarly pursuits, but that the 30-year-old, whose strong features and goateed look belie a gentle demeanor, has actually been living here. “I keep a loaf for snacking,” Felix explains, then guides me to a wall of lockers.” (via The New York Observer)

Legally Ginger: Local’s Resident Redheads “Sneak” Into The NYU Law Library

NYULocal – “Vanderbilt Hall, home of NYU Law School, has always struck us as being oddly out of place. Its quaint brick courtyard framed by wrought iron gates and redbrick archways is something out of Princeton or Harvard; there’s a definite Ivy League feel. But there’s just one problem- the school’s library is notoriously hard to get into. We had to try. But how?”
