Books in Green Library

SFGate published a slideshow and review of Robert Dawson’s The Public Library: A Photographic Essay (Princeton Architectural Press, 2014). Dawson, an instructor of photography at San Jose State and Stanford, wrote, “In a culture that is increasingly privatized, libraries are among the last free spaces we have left. Public libraries are worth fighting for, and this book is my way of fighting.”

See the slideshow and read the review, ‘The Public Library’: a photo gallery.

The Charles Daniels Sheet Music Collection principally contains sheet music of works either composed by Daniels, published under his given name or one of his pseudonyms, notably Neil Moret, or works published by one of the many publishers Daniels was affiliated with during his career. Also included are piano rolls of works by Daniels, various periodicals from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, ephemera, and compositions and publications by the creator of the Charles Daniels Sheet Music Collection, Nan Bostick.

From May 1st to August 29th, Special Collections will open at 8 a.m. Monday through Friday instead of our usual 10 a.m. start time. Melissa Pincus has been hired to work our front desk during this test period and see how patrons respond to the earlier start time. Melissa comes to us from the University Archives where she worked on processing the Shockley Papers and she currently works part-time as a reference librarian at Menlo College.

While we are opening the room earlier in the day, it is important to note that the page schedule from SAL2 and SAL3 remains the same (10 a.m. for SAL3 and 12 noon for SAL2).
