Branner Library News
Digital Library Systems and Services is hosting the second annual Digital Library Services Expo and all SUL staff are invited! This is a great opportunity to learn more about inside the DLSS organization, what's new on the service front, and examples of our collaborations with other SUL staff to develop and deliver library services.
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.
Stanford Libraries is happy to announce our new membership with the non-profit organization DataCite. DataCite provides persistent identifiers known as DOIs (digital object identifiers) for research data and other digital materials. Because of this new partnership, the Libraries will now be able to provide DOI services to the entire Stanford campus, including to groups like SimTK. A DOI service will help us to support diverse needs to make research outputs and other digital materials persistently available in a way that meets the specific requirements implemented by some funding agencies and publishers.
Earth Day, April 22nd, is coming up soon. The American Chemical Society has expanded activities and events to a week: Chemists Celebrate Earth Week. This year's theme is "Diving into Marine Chemistry." To commemorate Earth Day/Week, the ACS Silicon Valley Section and the Stanford Libraries are holding an event at the Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove on Saturday, April 28, from 1:30-3:30 pm. It will include a talk followed by tours (see flyer). Please join us for this free, family-friendly event.
Advanced registration is required.
