Archives and Music Departments/Conservatories don’t often collaborate on preservation. They are simply disconnected entities at most universities. As we discovered that our Conservatory had commissioned musical works, the Archivist and Music Librarian saw an opportunity for digital humanities preservation. The goal of this project is to not only preserve, display, and make the compositions accessible to the public, but also to give a second creative life to those works.
