The Internet Archive: Free and Open Access to Primary Sources
The Internet Archive (www.archive.org) has wide-ranging collections that include both scholarly and entertaining websites, books, music and computer programs. This workshop will include explorations of Internet Archive content; discussions on accessing and using the materials in research; and reviews of searching strategies. So, whether you would like to analyze the playlists of over 11,000 Grateful Dead concerts or wish to explore emulation as a preservation strategy for video games, this workshop will add another set of tools to your research toolbox.
The Library and Beyond is a free workshop series featuring resources, tools and skills that will help you cut through the clutter so you can succeed in the classroom (and at life!). The series' content is geared to undergraduates, but all are welcome to attend.
