The connection to performing arts archives seems to grow ever more tenuous in these posts, but Ephemeral Archives felt we must salute Brian May on the occasion of his official installation as the fourth Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University yesterday.

Does this mean that the LJMU Special Collections and Archives will collect even more actively in the area of performing arts? Collections they already have processed include: the England’s Dreaming Punk Archive, Everyman Theatre Archive (some of which is digitized) and Frankie Vaughan Archive.

It also gives us another excuse to gratuitously link to another YouTube video.
