The Stanford University Libraries are hosting a one-year trial of Overleaf Pro for those who use LaTex for writing articles or dissertations and for those working on collaborative projects. We would like your feedback on the Overleaf trial. Are you using Overleaf? Do you have suggestions for the Overleaf development team? Use this link to provide your comments.

Imagine being able to search for video content not by keyword, but by using other visual information, like a still image, a screenshot or a single frame from another video. As the ubiquity of images and video in our culture increases, it is not surprising how useful this kind of functionality could be.

Every year Brian Sedar, Faculty Coach, and Darryl Goodson, Industry Coach, borrow the set of the current RSMeans Construction Cost Estimation Books from the Terman Engineering Library for several long weekends during winter quarter. We wondered about the intense interest in these reference volumes and found out that the books are taking a winter vacation in Nevada with a student team from the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The Terman Engineering Library has made some big changes to our digital standards collection. In an effort to minimize the number of places to access our standards collection most of the standards currently available via TechStreet have moved to ANSI Standards Connect. The only content still available on TechStreet is the ACI Manual of Concrete practice.
Construction of marine facilities is an expensive endeavor, with platforms built in deep waters costing in the billions of dollars. That makes it important to do it right the first time. Research at the John A. Blume Center for Earthquake Engineering has helped to advance the offshore industry's knowledge of how to build these structures more reliably.
Student theses and research reports from visiting scholars in the Reliability of Marine Structures (RMS) Program are now preserved and available through the Stanford Digital Repository.
