Contemporary Composers Web Archive (CCWA)

Archived since: Oct, 2013

Description:

The Contemporary Composers Web Archive (CCWA) is a collection developed by the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation's Music Librarians (a collaborative working group including Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, MIT, Princeton, and Yale Universities, and the Universities of Chicago and Pennsylvania). The CCWA is an extension of an existing Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation Music Librarians collaborative collection development agreement identifying approximately 1,500 globally based contemporary composers of sufficient importance to have their published printed works collected at a comprehensive level by at least one participating institution. The agreement defines “contemporary” composers as: 20th-century composers still active in 1975; works by those composers deceased before 1975 but published for the first time in significant new editions after 1975 (optional among members); and composers active after 1975. The Archive aims to preserve for researchers the personal / official websites belonging to these notable contemporary composers in order to assure the continuing availability of the important, and potentially ephemeral content they contain, such as: biography, bibliography, discography, recordings, writings, lists / notices of performances, audio and video performances, photos, press notices, and more.

Extreme Right Movements in Europe

Archived since: Jan, 2019

Description:

The Extreme Right Movements in Europe Web Archive is a collection built by members of the Ivies Plus Western European Studies Affinity Group, under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. By ‘extreme right’ the Group understands a large ideological spectrum of radical right thinking, extending from anti-globalization and right-wing populism, to white nationalism, neo-fascism, and extremism. Extreme right movements and ideology share a number of features, which typically include hostility to globalization, fervent criticism of immigration, and have political, social, and religious aspects, and exist outside of and are more radical than mainstream conservatism. The Archive collects a wide array of web content, and aims to preserve this content for scholars, teachers, and future researchers in the humanities and social sciences as documentation of the rise of extreme right movements in Europe in the early twenty-first century. Although some users may find this content offensive or dangerous, its primary purpose is for research and teaching. Due to the nature of this material, access to the Archive is restricted to on-campus use within the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. If you have questions about this collection, please contact erme@library.columbia.edu.

Independent Documentary Filmmakers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan Web Archive

Archived since: May, 2019

Description:

Chinese independent documentary filmmakers from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong have been crucial to bring attention to social and political developments. Their projects are important primary source material for the study of contemporary China, and support institutions’ programs on contemporary China studies. Because of the sensitive nature of their work, their web presences are at risk to disappear at any time. Distribution of Chinese independent documentary films also increasingly faces difficulties. The filmmaker’s websites, blogs and video feeds include information and videos that are otherwise unavailable. Curated by Luo Zhou, Chinese Studies Librarian at Duke, and Joshua Seufert, Chinese Studies Librarian at Princeton, the archive aims to systematically capture and preserve theses ephemeral websites for future access.

The agreement defines contemporary art as it refers to 'developments in the visual arts from 1975 to the present,' with material sought 'for the entire career of artists who have been active at any time since 1975.'

Muftiships Web Archive

Archived since: Jun, 2020

Description:

The Muftiships Web Archive preserces the websites — which may include videos, images, and PDF files — of Muftis and leading jurists from the Islamic world. These websites cover the responses of leading judicial authorities to current events in their respective countries (and in some cases well beyond). In addition to the content, the websites illustrate the manner in which these authorities engage with their public, and the ways in which Islamic law is administered in the digital age. In light of the Coronavirus pandemic in the Middle East and the Islamic world, these websites gained greater visibility. However, these jurists and institutions have been the focus of interest for decades. This is a collaborative project -- under the auspices of the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation -- led by Gayle Fischer (Harvard University), Roberta Dougherty (Yale University), Peter Magierski (Columbia University), Guy Burak (New York University), and Sean Swanick (Duke University). Fatwa and other statements directly related to Covid-19 were supplied by Dr. Adnan Zulfiqar (Rutgers Law) as part of the 'Mapping Covid Fatwas' project, in conjunction with Harvard University's Program in Islamic Law.

Popline and K4Health Web Archive

Archived since: Mar, 2019

Description:

Retired on September 1, 2019, the Popline database contained more than 400,000 records and provided students and researchers worldwide with access to journal articles, reports, books, unpublished resources, and full-text documents to users in low- and middle-income countries. Popline was part of the Knowledge for Health Project (K4Health), which ended on September 10. As Popline's sponsoring organization, K4Health served as a neutral knowledge broker for program managers and health care providers working in family planning, reproductive health, and other global health areas and served more than 2.6 million users annually. On August 27, 2019, the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation created archival copies of K4Health, Popline, and Toolkits by K4Health. The copies preserve Popline's abstracts, organized by topic, but lack the database's search functionality. The copies also contain K4Health blog posts, and some downloadable resources and videos.

By archiving these websites, the Confederation strives to guarantee that these potentially ephemeral websites are preserved and remain browsable by researchers and scholars.

Vaccination in Modern America: Misinformation vs. Public Health Advocacy Web Archive

Archived since: Jan, 2020

Description:

The Vaccination in Modern America: Misinformation vs. Public Health Advocacy Web Archive is an initiative developed by librarians in the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation. The Archive identifies and captures webpages representing the current state of public discourse and contrasting approaches to authority on the topic in the United States, with a focus on sites that are both pro- and anti-vaccination. The purpose of this collection is to capture potentially ephemeral information about vaccination that could be used by health service researchers, information scientists, sociologists, and others to understand the motivations, practices, and outcomes of health information and misinformation. Anti-vaccination sites were those that opposed the established national guidelines for vaccination and vaccination schedules, as well as those that focus on chemical vaccine adjuvants or organic natural living as a replacement for vaccination. Prominent natural living advocates and bloggers who have made anti-vaccination arguments, or who have expressed sympathies to vaccine avoidance, have been included to provide additional context around anti-vaccination information campaigns.
