SUL Rosette

Palo Alto Patch featured the scheduled opening in October of the McMurtry Building, the new home for the department of Art and Art History and the Art & Architecture Library. The article included faculty interviews, descriptions of inaugural year special programs and projects, and a statement by Matthew Tiews, associate dean for the advancement of the arts: “The new McMurtry Building will further the interdisciplinary investigation of the arts to which Stanford is committed. We believe the arts are a necessary part of a well-rounded education. They stimulate analysis and problem-solving, as well as providing a means for self-expression and connection with the university community.”

Read the entire article, "Stanford Art and Art History Faculty, Staff Making Plans for McMurtry Building."

Over the next several weeks, there will be two major (and related) changes to public printing and copying in the Stanford Libraries driven by changes that the office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) is implementing to create a more streamlined, efficient, and robust printing and copying service.

Wet book salvage training.
by Richenda Brim

At the beginning of July, Preservation Department staff held a wet book salvage workshop at Stanford Auxiliary Library 3. We identified SAL3 as a priority training site due to their distance from immediate preservation support in the event of a flood or leak. So, we packed up some extra supplies and took our salvage show on the road!
