Stanford Libraries staff will be leading an upcoming webinar on the advanced uses of the Bulk Extractor forensics tool titled “bulk_extractor: Beyond the Basics”. This is part of an ongoing series of webinars designed to dig a little deeper into the advanced functionality of the BitCurator software environment. These webinars are hosted by the BitCurator Consortium, of which Stanford is a charter member.
An excellent example of what can be done with ArcGIS Online is the Stanford Geospatial Center's Gaihōzu: Japanese Imperial Maps portal, which provides access to the most popular objects in the Stanford Digital Repository.
Over the last few months, we’ve been testing Single Sign-On (SSO) for providing access to ArcGIS.com, which we have licensed for the use of all Stanford affiliates. This means that you no longer need to go through the Stanford Geospatial Center to get an account!

Established in 1965 by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC), the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is the world’s repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Containing over 900,000 entries from x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses, this unique database of accurate 3D structures has become an essential resource to scientists around the world. The June 2015 issue of CCDC's Crystalline Newsletter covers 50 Years of Sharing Crystal Structures (PDF). In addition to coverage of the published literature, CSD searches also contains data published directly through the CSD as CSD Communications that are not available anywhere else.
Kevin Kishimoto, Music Metadata Librarian, Stanford University Libraries, and Tracey Snyder, Music Catalog and Instruction Librarian, Cornell University Libraries, were presented with the Richard S.

A campus-wide site license for CrystalMaker is now available to current students, faculty and staff at Stanford. Used for research and teaching in chemistry, solid-state physics, materials science, mineralogy and crystallography, this package includes three software programs: CrystalMaker, CrystalDiffract, and SingleCrystal. Both Mac and PC versions are available (but not Linux). After installing the software on your personal computer, you do not need to be connected to the Internet in order to use it.
This session will offer an overview of the “whys and hows” of planning, designing, and producing exhibitions for the Library’s Special Collections. For context, Becky will begin with a brief wayback (post-horse and carriage, pre-information superhighway) photo tour of exhibits in Stanford’s Main Library. She’ll describe the current exhibit program’s primary goals and address the question of where ideas for exhibits come from: who proposes them and how and why they are chosen, illustrated with examples.
Looking for funding opportunities? Want to see what grants have been awarded? Or, are you interested in scanning philanthropy news and documents to see if they provide insight into a funding proposal you are working on? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you should check out the new Funding Resources Search tool that lets you search multiple resources at one time. Access is limited to current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford.
