We are pleased to welcome Pennington Ahlstrand to Special Collections. Penny has accepted a position as the Project Archivist for the Gordon Moore project and will be working primarily out of our new Redwood City location. 

Penny has worked as a corporate archivist and archival consultant in the Bay Area since 1997. For over 10 years she worked part-time on large processing projects at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory – most notably the Web Wizards collection (the first US website was at SLAC), the papers of Nobel laureate and former SLAC director Burton Richter, and the papers of the man who built SLAC and was its first director: W.K.H. "Pief" Panofsky.

This is Penny’s third position in Special Collections. She began at Stanford working on the processing team for the Apple Computer Inc. records held by Stanford University Library. Most recently, she is completing a CLIR grant for the University Archives division to process the Stephen Schneider papers. She now comes full circle and returns to the Manuscripts division.

If you've ever been there, you know that Hopkins Marine Station (HMS) is a special place. But it's not just a special place for those of us who love the gorgeous views; it's a special place for scientists as well. Which is why it's such a treat that researchers at Hopkins Marine Station continue to make more of their historical research data available to others through the Stanford Digital Repository.

Greenr

GREENR  is interactive and current, allowing users to navigate issue, organization and country portals. It's a one-stop site dedicated to studying sustainability and the environment.  We have trial access through the end of February, 2014.

It seems there is a boot camp for just about everything these days. But have you heard of a boot camp for scientists that teaches best practices for writing and managing code? That's just what the organization Software Carpentry (SWC) is about. 

bX Recommender logoA trial of bX Recommender has been added to SFX (the Find it at Stanford links) maintained by the Stanford Libraries.  Thanks to Alexis Manheim and Holly Thomasen for their work to customize this tool for SUL.

bX Recommender is a service developed by ExLibris to work with SFX to help researchers discover additional relevant articles. Recommendations are based on the usage of millions of researchers around the globe. Starting with the article the user is looking at, bX Recommender checks what other articles were used together with that article and then displays a list of other relevant articles on the SFX results page.
