Stanford Libraries to Provide DataCite DOIs

April 10, 2018
by Amy E. Hodge

Stanford Libraries is happy to announce our new membership with the non-profit organization DataCite. DataCite provides persistent identifiers known as DOIs (digital object identifiers) for research data and other digital materials. Because of this new partnership, the Libraries will now be able to provide DOI services to the entire Stanford campus, including to groups like SimTK. A DOI service will help us to support diverse needs to make research outputs and other digital materials persistently available in a way that meets the specific requirements implemented by some funding agencies and publishers.

New updates to EarthWorks with more access to data

Over the past two months a team at Stanford Libraries have been working to add new features and resources to our geospatial discovery portal EarthWorks. EarthWorks is the place for users to find and access geospatial data at Stanford. With the recent updates, the amount of data users can find has more than doubled with access to over 70,000 resources from more than 20 institutions. Users can now discover scanned maps alongside Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data, index maps, census data and research data.

A new SearchWorks catalog index was released on Thursday, August 17, 2017. To ensure accuracy of the data in SearchWorks, we do a quarterly "fresh" indexing of all bibliographic data from Symphony (Stanford Libraries' integrated library system).

This quarter's new index includes an enhancement to the Genre facet: there are more terms indexed into this facet than previously.

2000+ audio cassettes from Allen Ginsberg collection now streaming from SearchWorks

by Geoff Willard

Ginsberg comes up fairly often in this blog (e.g. Rebecca Wingfield's recent post about "Howl" going up online), but the release of over 2000+ audio cassette recordings to SearchWorks is truly another cause for celebration. These recordings represent a staggering amount of primary source material associated with the Beat Generation, the bulk of which date from the 1970s to 1990s.
