Have you seen these gorgeous library backgrounds you can use to pretend you’re amongst the smell of of old books and hushed page turning?
When I saw them I got a little jealous and thought, “computers are just as soothing!” So without further ado, welcome to your Internet Archive virtual Zoom backgrounds.
We’ve got a pretty majestic building you could sit in front of. There’s free wifi.
Or you can come inside and sit in the Great Room with us, stained glass dome and all.
Sit quietly amongst the pews with our little Internet Archivist sculptures by Nuala Creed.
Or have them be your backup dancers / Greek chorus on all your calls.
You can sit amongst the films waiting to be digitized.
Or pretend to be digitizing them yourself.
Scan books seated in front of a Table Top Scribe.
Or sit with the constant hum of busy servers in the background.
