New Douglas Menuez Exhibit
This is a guest post from Special Collections Processing Assistant Brian Bethel.
Stanford Special Collections is pleased to announce the release of a new online exhibit featuring the Silicon Valley photographs of American photographer Douglas Menuez, whose complete archive of over 250,000 collected photographs is housed permanently at Stanford. The new online exhibit highlights 8,500 photographs focusing on the computer and semiconductor industries, venture capital deals, startups, and Internet companies. There are also specific collections of photographs related to major Silicon Valley companies photographed by Menuez in the 1980s and 1990s, such as Apple Computer,Adobe Systems, Sun Microsystems, and NetObjects.
The Douglas Meneuz collection was processed over a number of years by staff in Special Collections, chiefly among them Laura Wilsey, with assistance from Dinah Dinh and Crystal Dinh. The digitization of selections from the collection was completed in two cycles; the first was managed by Lauren Scott (2006) and the second by Laura Wilsey (2011). Other assistance was provided by Matt Pearson, Glynn Edwards, and Brian Bethel.
This exhibit was created using Spotlight at Stanford, a layer of services that integrates with Stanford Libraries' discovery, access, and preservation infrastructure. Spotlight at Stanford is available for use by members of the Stanford community who wish to enhance user engagement with their digital materials.
