Two recent announcement for music and library lovers:

  • UC Santa Cruz has received a grant to digitize their Grateful Dead Archive. UCSC Librarian Virginia Steel notes that “the grant gives us the opportunity to create a new model for web-based archives that will include traditional materials from our Grateful Dead Archive–along with materials contributed by scholars and Deadheads around the world.”
  • Rapper Tupac Shakur’s manuscript writings and other papers will be made available for scholarly research by the Robert W. Woodruff Library of the Atlanta University Center. According to the press release (PDF), the collection “features Shakur’s handwritten lyrics and track listings, personal notes, video and film concepts, fan correspondence, promotional materials and other items providing a unique insight into his career and creative genius.”
