The University Archives recently collaborated with faculty in the Computer Science Dept. to create a collection in the Stanford Digital Repository of white papers for an upcoming NSF summit on the future of computer science education.
The Mathematics & Statistics Library is merging with Falconer Biology Library. The merged library will be located in Falconer’s space in Herrin Hall (3rd floor, diagonally across from Bldg. 380). More information is available on the Math/Stat and Biology Library Merger Web Page.
"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. Please also see this press release: CrossRef Members add over a quarter million CrossMark records; Researchers click on CrossMark logos 50K times per month (November 13, 2013)

xSearch enables Stanford students and researchers to search multiple resources at one time. The 250+ resources in xSearch include abstracts and indexes, full-text ejournal and ebook sites, patents, technical reports, reference materials, plus more. In September 2013, a test version with an new interface and more content became available. Check it out and let us know what you think. Go to xSearch-test
The Science and Engineering Libraries are offering over 30 workshops during Fall Term including multiple sessions of the "Citation Tools Overview" workshop as well as sessions on specific citation management tools such as EndNote, Mendeley, RefWorks and Zotero. Other workshops include information on resources for medical device design, data management best practices, grant and funding resources, sessions on Web of Science, xSearch, SciFinder, Reaxys and GeoRef and resources for energy and environmental studies research. Geospatial workshops on ArcGIS, Fusion Tables and Google Earth are also offered throughout the term.
All students, faculty and staff are welcome.
