The National Diet Library, the Japanese equivalent of the Library of Congress, publishes a quarterly journal, entitled Current Awareness.  In the most recent issue, Regan Murphy Kao, curator for the Japanese collection at Stanford’s East Asia Library, describes an experimental web archiving project she initiated in 2016.  The project, called Snapshot of Japan 2016-2018, aimed to preserve a snapshot of contemporary Japanese society.  In contrast to other web archiving projects, which pursue a single topic, event, or type of site, Snapshot of Japan archived a wide range of websites deemed rep

Stanford record in Who's on Frist

Who’s on First at Stanford

Here at the Stanford Libraries, we are a big fan of Who’s on First. While the comedy routine by Abbott and Costello is pretty good, here we are talking about the gazetteer project Who’s on First created by the team at Mapzen. The Who’s on First (WoF) gazetteer is a “big list of places” comprising one of the largest and richest compilations of Open and permissively licensed geospatial data.

Digital Library Services Expo

Digital Library Systems and Services is hosting the second annual Digital Library Services Expo and all SUL staff are invited!

It is scheduled for Thursday, April 19 from 1:00 - 4:00 PM. The event will take place in several rooms in Lathrop Library (370 and 470) and the East Asia Library (224). We will enjoy ice cream together after a series of tracked programs.

Changing LOCKSS

March 22, 2017
by Nicholas Taylor

You may already know the story of LOCKSS’ beginnings (PDF).

On a fall day in 1999, a hike in the woods became the backdrop for a spontaneous problem-solving session on the preservation gap affecting online journals. The hikers, an electronic serials librarian (Vicky Reich) and a computer scientist (David Rosenthal), sketched out a plan to replicate the incidentally distributed, redundant architecture by which print journals had been preserved, in a digital system. They brought the proposal to the Stanford University Librarian, Michael Keller, who famously blessed the project with the admonition, “don’t cost me any money; don’t get me into trouble; do what you want.”

Reflections on the 2016 IIPC General Assembly and Web Archiving Conference

May 12, 2016
by Nicholas Taylor

In keeping with shallow tradition, it's taken me a few weeks to collect my thoughts on the recently-concluded IIPC General Assembly and Web Archiving Conference, hosted this year by the National and University Library of Iceland. In the wake of last year's meeting, I speculated on what developments in web archiving we might together effect in the year ahead (now behind). Nearly a year later, that conceit provides a convenient jumping-off point for reflecting on how it all went, where we might go from here, and the tremendous amount of work to do in our one remaining collective month before the anniversary of that post. :)
