"What happens when the record of scholarly research published in journals, books, proceedings or other documents changes? As careful as authors, reviewers, and publishers are in the publication process, corrections, updates, errata, and even retractions and withdrawals are sometimes necessary. But how can researchers find out about these important changes?" Learn more about CrossMark.

The Stanford Geospatial Center has created a series of maps in support of the work of Professor Jon Krosnick who released new state level data on Americans' view of climate change. Dr. Krosnick, a senior fellow with the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, presented the findings to the congressional Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change. The Stanford Report released an article on November 13, 2014 discussing Dr. Krosnick's work, which shows that the majority of residents in every state surveyed supported government limits on greenhouse gas emissions, tax breaks to encourage solar power production, and energy efficient appliances.
Twelve maps were produced by Patricia Carbajales and David Medeiros, both of the Stanford Geospatial Center located in Branner Library. The maps include visual representations on a state by state basis of the answers to such questions as whether or not global warming has been happening and if it has been caused by humans. As if often the case, these visualizations allow for enhanced understanding of complex spatial data quickly through the use of a map of the United States.

The Archive of Recorded Sound recently held its first ever listening party on October 17th. We were thrilled to welcome over 40 attendees to the event here at the Archive, who were invited to flick through multiple boxes of duplicate 78rpm records, dating from approximately 1900-1940, to select those they would like to hear played on our 1925 Victrola Credenza, just one example from our magnificent phonograph collection here at the Archive which dates from 1904-1930. More details about this collection, including images and demonstration videos, are now available on our website.

We're delighted to announce that Stanford Libraries is now a member of the Center for Research Libraries - Global Forum Network. This greatly expands the gamut of research materials that are available to the entire Stanford community.
CRL is a partnership of more than 275 university, college, and independent research libraries. For 60-plus years CRL has acquired and preserved newspapers, journals, documents, archives, and other traditional and digital resources from a global network of sources, and made them available to member institutions through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery.
The Center for Research Libraries provide approximately five million publications, archives, and collections and one million digital resources to its member libraries to supplement their own humanities, science, and social science holdings. CRL has in-depth holdings that support research in history of science, economics, law and government, immigration and population studies, international diplomacy, cultural studies, and more. In addition, a partnership with the Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering and Technology offers access to tens of thousands of scarce journal titles (many of them in foreign languages) to CRL members.
CRL materials can be obtained for extended loan periods and at no cost by users affiliated with member libraries. CRL resources include:
- 6,500 international newspapers, many dating to the 1700s—the largest collection of circulating newspapers in North America.
- 4,500 U.S. newspapers, many dating to the colonial era, including 2,000 ethnic titles. Foreign journals rarely held in U.S. libraries.
- More than 800,000 foreign dissertations.
- Area Studies: major microform and paper collections from Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Europe, Asia, Southeast Asia, and many other areas.
- Access to the Linda Hall Library’s science, technology, and engineering serials.
- Access to the Law Library Microform Consortium's (LLMC) digital resources.
