New Ambrose Bierce manuscript collection open for research: Foster Family Collection of Ambrose Bierce materials

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914?), author of such noted Civil War short stories as the “Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” collected in his seminal 1891 collection Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, was unique among American writers for his front-line service as a combatant in the American Civil War. Thanks to a recent major gift, the Department of Special Collections in the Stanford University Libraries now hold unique manuscript materials relating to Bierce’s Civil War service.

Goodbye Lynda, Hello LinkedIn Learning

On Monday, Feb. 4, University IT (UIT) upgraded Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning, which acquired Lynda.com, has the same great content but  provides an even more personalized experience. And, it’s still free to you!

Now that the upgrade is complete, you will no longer be able to access Lynda.com — instead you will be redirected to LinkedIn Learning. Don’t worry, all your learning activity and history from Lynda.com was seamlessly transferred to LinkedIn Learning.
