Building the Grateful Dead Archive Online: The Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion, a project briefing session presented at CNI’s spring 2012 membership meeting, by Virginia Steel and Robin Chandler of the University of California, Santa Cruz, is now available on CNI’s two video channels:
The Grateful Dead Archive (GDA) at UC Santa Cruz represents one of the most significant popular culture collections of the 20th Century and documents the band’s activity and influence in contemporary music from 1965 to 1995. At CNI’s spring 2012 membership meeting, UC Santa Cruz University Librarian Virginia Steel and Project Manager Robin Chandler discussed the particular challenges of merging a traditional archive with a socially constructed one.
