Radiohead has curated their own collection, and is now hosting it online via the "Radiohead Public Library."

For its opening week, band members Colin and Jonny Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, Philip Selway, and Thom Yorke will each serve as librarian for a day beginning January 20 and ending January 24, with each member curating material from the band's expansive collection.

Rarities such as their 1992 debut, the Drill EP, "I Want None of This” from the 2005 charity compilation Help!: A Day in the Life, and the 2011 TKOL RMX 8 remix EP are included.

As the band explains, via press release:

From today, visitors at Radiohead.com will be able to create their own library card and membership number, and access a highly curated and organized archive of the band’s catalogue and corresponding visuals and various artifacts associated with each album: Detailed artwork, official videos, and ad-free HD live and TV performances, B-Sides and compilation tracks, previously out-of-print merchandise to be custom made on demand, band members’ "office chart” playlists from around the time of In Rainbows, The King of Limbs and A Moon Shaped Pool recording sessions, and more.
