New exhibition at East Asia Library - Hand and Eye: Contemporary Reflections of East Asian Ceramic Traditions
In collaboration with the Center for East Asian Studies, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary at Stanford, the East Asia Library is hosting an exhibition of contemporary ceramics entitled "Hand and Eye: Contemporary Reflections of East Asian Ceramic Traditions."
The Spotlight at Stanford service team is pleased to announce the publication of Exhibits Documentation, a new exhibit and guide to building Spotlight at Stanford exhibits. This "exhibit on exhibits" provides documentation and examples, alongside descriptions for how to create feature, browse, and about pages -- all on the Reference tab.
Earlier this year we introduced our student workers and some of the projects they were involved in this summer.
We are happy to announce an update to one of the projects – the Road & Track Magazine collection.
Mimi Tashiro, Music Bibliographer, has announced her retirement from Stanford Libraries beginning September 21. Mimi is incredibly devoted and loyal to Stanford University having spent her entire career of just over thirty-eight years as a distinguished music librarian at the Stanford Music Library.
Stanford Libraries has posted five videos on its YouTube channel. They are targeted for new undergraduate students, and are required watching for the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) students, who come to the library for workshops on information literacy. The videos are helpful to all researchers! These videos are part of the department of Learning and Outreach's effort to "flip the classroom".
