Are you counting the days until the 2013 Cardinal football season starts? If so, why not bask in the glow of past victories a little longer -- stop by the Bender Room (on the fifth floor of the Bing Wing) to see a selection of historic Rose Bowl memorabilia from the collections of the Stanford University Archives. The exhibit will be on view through the end of February.
Come take a look at the beautiful new Istanbul poster exhibition in the lobby of Green Library's East Wing.

The Istanbul poster exhibition will be on display in the lobby of Green East until March 15, 2013.
