Page from journal created by Arthur H. Benade. Acoustical Theory - Woodwind BOIK (Book of Infinite Knowledge) misc. subjects., 1970-1986. (M1711_S3_B74_F1)

Many of the unpublished materials in the Musical Acoustics Research Library records have been digitized, except for personal correspondence and other miscellaneous documents. This includes materials from the four collections: the Catgut Acoustical Society, the John W. Coltman Collection, the Arthur H. Benade Collection, and the John Backus Collection. Researchers may access the digital copies through links from the description in the online finding aid.

The collection was processed in 2011 by Andrea Castillo. For more information please see Andrea's previous article.

The Codex Mexico: The Book as Art exhibition opened on Friday, March 22, at the Embassy of Mexico's Cultural Institute in Washington DC, in partnership with the Codex Foundation and Stanford University Libraries.

The Stanford University Department of Special Collections and University Archives has been awarded a grant from the Center for History of Physics, American Institute of Physics (AIP), to process the papers of physicists Karl P. Cohen and Martin Packard, along with sizeable portion of the papers of William Shockley.

The Department of Special Collections is pleased to have acquired recently Pierre Antoine de la Place’s Theatre Anglois, an eight-volume set published over the years 1746 to 1749.

Processing is underway on the Stephen Henry Schneider papers in the Stanford University Archives, thanks to the generous support of the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). As you’ll read, this year our focus is on science!

Winning logos of the CourseWork Visual Design Contest.

On January 14, 2013, Academic Computing Services and the CourseWork UX team sponsored a Visual Design Contest to redesign the CourseWork logo. After receiving dozens of “strong entries,” the two student winners were announced on March 15th.

The winning entries of the CourseWork Visual Design Contest came from sophomore, Roger Chen and freshman, Ashley Ngu. Both entries were noted for their overall “excellent graphic design and attractive color scheme.”

Roger took 1st place in the contest and was awarded a MacBook Air Pro, while Ashley took second, and was awarded an iPad mini.

In addition to the prizes received, Roger and Ashley will have elements of their designs incorporated into the redesigned user interface and reskinning of CourseWork. The redesign is scheduled for rollout during the 2013-2014 Academic year.

Congratulations, Roger and Ashley!

As part of Sunshine Week -- and in conjunction with the White House's new policy on Open Access to federally funded scientific information -- a small group of government information librarians has started a petition on petitions.whitehouse.gov asking the Obama Administration to assure that there is free permanent public access to ALL authentic government information.

We hope you'll sign the petition and forward on to all your friends and social networks to help us reach our goal of 100,000 signatures by April 11, 2013! Thanks in advance!!


WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Require free online permanent public access to ALL federal government information and publications.

1. Assure that GPO has the funds to continue to maintain and develop the Federal Digital System (FDsys).

2. Raise ALL Congressional, Executive & Judicial branch information, publications & data to the level of federally funded scientific information & publish ALL government information as "Open Access."
