As we say goodbye to autumn and hello to winter we thought it appropriate to show off some of the books at Cubberley Library with a wintry theme. Once you take them home, requirements for reading these books are 

  1. A cup of hot cocoa
  2. A comfy warm spot to read and
  3. Someone needing a tale of whirling snowflakes or winters chill.

Please stop by before winter break.  Snow is falling (somewhere) and books are calling.

by Kelly Fields

A new exhibit about the role of the Stanford University School of Medicine in WWI is now on view in Lane Library, marking the 100th anniversary of the US entry into the war. The exhibit examines the split that occurred within the university and the country over the proper role of the US when war broke out in 1914, as well as the varied ways that the School of Medicine faculty, students, and facilities eventually became involved. The exhibit features historical photographs and documents from the Stanford Medical History Center, located in Lane Library.
