New on the Shelf exhibition features rare books & contemporary artists’ books
A new exhibition in Stanford’s Green Library offers a window into recent acquisitions in Special Collections. Books—both manuscript and print—are the focus of the display on the second floor of the Bing Wing, on view September 4, 2018 through January 6, 2019.
Under a program established by The Stanford University Department of Public Safety, Public Access Stations (medical and trauma kits) have been installed at 35 locations across the Stanford Campus, one of which has been installed at Green Library at the Circulation and Privileges Desk, first floor.
We are very pleased to announce the publication of the first bilingual Spotlight at Stanford exhibit - Mario Paci: An Italian Maestro in China. Look at the upper right-hand corner of the exhibit, and click on “English” to toggle between Chinese and English.
A pilot project in the Music Library to digitize sheet music and make images available in the SearchWorks catalog has produced its first collection, made up of 140 piano arrangements and transcriptions. Basic records for these items have long been in SearchWorks, and are now greatly enhanced with access to the digital images and options for close examination and download. This collection was chosen for scanning because the paper is too brittle to withstand the handling that results from practice and performance.
