After Words

Sibley Music Library On a Technological Note
afterwords SCANNING HISTORY: A nearly 100-year-old German lesson book for the piano is an example of the kind of rare and unique works that will become available free online to musicians and scholars in the next few years, thanks to a project at the Eastman School’s Sibley Music Library. The library has received a two-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitally scan more than 10,000 scores that are in the public domain but are owned by no more than two other libraries in the world. The materials will be available through the University’s digital repository known as “UR Research” (Photo: Richard Baker).
