Northwestern University is a private institution founded in 1851. The school has campuses in Evanston, IL, Chicago, IL, and Doha, Qatar. Northwestern's approximately 190,000 alumni include leaders in government, law, science, education, medicine, and performing arts. The Northwestern University Libraries use Archive-It to document online academic, administrative, research, athletic, public service, and social activities and reflect the evolving nature of the university's web presence. Metadata is the language used in Northwestern University Libraries’ (NUL) catalog, online tools, archives, and digital collections to describe and manage resources and enable their discovery and ongoing access by the scholarly community. NUL acknowledges the reality that our metadata and practices reflect a white supremacist and discriminatory culture.

Chicago Music Scene Web Archive

Archived since: Apr, 2016


The Chicago Music Scene web archive hopes to capture the “scene” in the Chicago musical community by documenting the web presence of specific ensembles, venues, festivals and publications. Before the utility of the Internet, musical activity was publicized in print publication, on broadsides, in pamphlets and in other ephemeral material. An understanding of the support and activity within a musical culture (or scene) is demonstrated in archival collections that hold this kind of material. Today, a music scene is represented on the web. As a searchable database, this archive offers the ability to learn about the current music scene in Chicago as it develops.
