Celebrate Earth Day, April 22nd

April 16, 2018
by Kelly L Roll

Sunday April 22nd is Earth Day. Cubberley Library staff have pulled some of our books imbued with the spirit of Earth Day. We have biographies of individuals dedicated to saving the flora and fauna of this planet as well as individuals who have made a difference in their communities by recycling trash or replanting. Come learn who Anna Comstock, Wangari Maathai, and Isatou Ceesay are and why they might be considered earth champions.  Other books which might interest budding earth warriors are on endangered species, community gardening, how the water cycle affects the environment, etc.

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.
