There is a new face at the Terman Engineering Library! I'm thrilled to introduce Zachary Painter, who joined Stanford Libraries on March 5, 2018, as the Research and Teaching Support Librarian in the Engineering Library.
Please join us in welcoming our new Digital Archivist, Sally DeBauche, who will start work on April 2nd. Sally will be responsible for reviewing workflows and for making the acquired- and born-digital materials that are received in Special Collections available for research. She will join Stanford's ePADD project team as well as become involved with other projects related to digital materials. While she will be based primarily at the Library’s Redwood City facility, you will also see her on campus.
The Music Library invites you to browse our reference collection. Note the following new additions, listed in no particular order:
In honor of International Women's Day, as part of our librarians' efforts to collect more work representing women's contributions to contemporary Chinese art, Stanford Libraries has recently acquired 21 works of experimental video art from the prestigious ShanghART gallery in Shanghai. The pieces were produced by three female artists, Liu Yi 刘毅, Lin Yuqi 林钰玘, and Liang Yue 梁玥.
If you’ve ever wondered what treasures lie in the basement of Green Library - this is the session for you! Media & Microtext is a hidden gem of Stanford Libraries' collections.

The Archive of Recorded Sound is developing rich collections of early and traditional jazz. In 2014 the Chuck Black Collection of 224 jazz recordings was donated to the Archive along with funds for cataloging and digitizing all of the discs. In addition, the Black family established the Chuck Black Endowment for Early Jazz and Blues to promote the study of early and traditional jazz, blues, and similar musical styles as they emerged and evolved from 1900-1950.
I am very pleased to announce that Stanford students, faculty, and staff are one of 10 institutions that have access to the beta version of SynOne. For a tour and for answers to commonly asked questions, view these materials in Stanford Box (access is limited to Stanford users) . After trying SynOne, it would be really great to get your feedback by completing this survey.
