The New York Times is reporting the donation by Mikhail Baryshnikov of his personal archives to the Dance Collection at the New York Public Library:

The library staff expects that it will take three years to transfer the 650 tapes to digital so they can be reviewed by researchers.

Such a gold mine! I know what I'll be doing on future trips to New York!

Too bad they can't leave something available longer than that for out-of-towners who can't visit this month!
