Stanford Libraries recently announced the launch of Virtual Tribunals, a collaborative project with the WSD HANDA Center for Human Rights and International Justice, intended to be a broad platform for access and research to records from international criminal tribunals. As noted in the launch announcement for Virtual Tribunals, this project has allowed Stanford Libraries to make additional incremental improvements to Spotlight at Stanford, and to the parts of our infrastructure that support access to our digital collections. Cathy Aster recently wrote about the support added to Spotlight for internationalization of exhibit page content and user interface labels. In addition, a number of other additions developed for Virtual Tribunals will be made more broadly available for Spotlight exhibit creators and for content managed in the Stanford Digital Repository.
