Wie Geocities privat archiviert wird


“Die Feiglinge von Yahoo haben ganz heimlich, still und leise angekündigt, dass sie GeoCities dichtmachen werden”, schreibt Jason Scott am 24. April in seinem Weblog. “Sie wollen diesen beinahe 20 Jahre alten Hosting-Dienst abschalten, der über die Jahre zur Heimat von Millionen Nutzern geworden ist.” Für den begeisterten Sammler virtueller Artefakte aus dem frühen Web der 1990er Jahre war sofort klar: “Das ist ein Teil unserer Geschichte. Unserer Kultur. Es ist etwas, das ich für künftige Generationen bewahren möchte.”

Two New Digital Collections of the Claremont Colleges Library

Bodman Collection of Italian Renaissance Manuscripts


In this digital collection are eleven autograph, signed letters written between members of the Medici family of Florence and others in their social and political circles, including Angelo Poliziano, the Sforza family, Palla Strozzi, and Francesco Guicciardini. Written between 1426 and 1522, the letters touch on a number of issues urgent to the House of Medici including military campaigns, political associations, and the trials of family life.

Fashion Plate Collection, 19th Century


Over 700 full-color fashion plates from the Macpherson Collection of the Ella Strong Denison Library at Scripps College were culled from a variety of women’s periodicals and other mass-circulating works published between 1789 and 1914. The images are primarily from France, Britain, America, and Spain, and depict scenes of nineteenth-century middle- and upper-class life with an emphasis on the leisure practices of bourgeois women, men, and children. A number of plates also derive from trade journals for tailors, who used the images to create made-to-order garments for fashionable men.
