Improving functionality for Spotlight and SDR content for full text and beyond

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.

One person can make a difference

There are days when staying in bed and pulling the covers over one’s head seems like the best course of action in an increasingly tumultuous world. At Cubberley Education Library we have put together a display of children’s books that we hope will inspire not only you but the next generation. Some of the titles are about giants in the fight against injustice such as Martin Luther King. Others highlight that one person who stood up for change. Please come read about the youngest marcher, Audrey Faye Hicks, or Lakas who protested the sale of the home where he and many others lived.

I am very pleased to announce the hire of Laura Wilsey as our new Cataloging and Metadata Librarian for incoming collections. She will work primarily out of our Stanford Redwood City but will travel to campus as needed as she takes over responsibility for managing metadata for our many complex digitization projects in collaboration with staff from the Metadata Development Unit and DLSS, as well as curators and subject specialists.
