John McCarthy Papers; sc0524_1995-247_b27_f12

These new collections take advantage of recently released functionality that provides researchers with new rich discovery and access capabilities for finding and working with digital collection content. Researchers may now discover the following materials: 

Pleistocene Lake Surprise 

This collection provides supplemental data and spreadsheets related to the M.S. thesis in the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences by Daniel Ibarra (December, 2014) and the subsequent publication in the Geological Society of America Bulletin (Ibarra et al., 2014). For additional information about this collection, check out this recent blog post by Amy Hodge.

Lake Surprise Research by Daniel Ibarra from http://purl.stanford.edu/zd652gs8988

It is no longer a surprise how ancient lakes in the western US -- such as Lake Surprise -- managed to become so large. Research undertaken by Daniel Ibarra, a graduate student working at the time with Kate Maher, assistant professor of geological and environmental sciences, showed that the root cause was a lower rate of evaporation than we see today.

Starting with the Class of 2014, the Department of Biology is depositing undergraduate senior honors theses in the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR).  In May and June, 49 students deposited theses in the department’s Senior Honors Theses Collection.

English Department

The English Department was delighted this year to begin offering its honors students the opportunity to deposit their theses in Stanford Digital Repository.  We are excited that SDR has given us a new opportunity to celebrate, share, and preserve the accomplishments of our undergraduates.

Student reception

2014 Honors theses written by undergraduates in Engineering were self-deposited by the authors for the first time this year. Stanford Electrical Engineering and BioEngineering students were quick off the mark to get their draft deposits ready for final check and inclusion in the SDR archive.  2014 research topics range from Deer Antler Genetics to Thermionic Emitters.

The benefits of having a PURL (permanent URL) for their digital honors thesis which they can include in resumes, CVs, and grad school applications is something students really appreciate.  It preserves their research for the future and makes it easy to share with others, if they choose.

The five theses submitted this year are now available in SearchWorks alongside 30 digital honors theses from prior years collected and deposited in the SDR by Terman Library staff.

Eight new digital collections are now available in SearchWorks. Several of these collections take advantage of recently enhanced functionality which better integrates material in the Stanford Digital Repository with data contained in Symphony and enables discovery of and access to media files.

Our blog series highlighting new materials deposited to the Stanford Digital Repository has been on a quasi-hiatus for the last few months. But don't let the quiet fool you: deposit activity in the SDR has been stronger than ever!  In this catch-up post, we draw attention to some of the most exciting items and collections added to the SDR recently. Also keep your eyes open for more Deposit of the Week posts throughout the summer! A number of SUL staffers have been working hard to build digital collections of current work by Stanford students and faculty through the use of the SDR Online Deposit application, and they are going to tell you all about it.
