After 4 years managing SUL's Business Services unit, Regina Islas is moving on to new adventures.  Her last day with SUL will be September 19th. 

In her time with us, Regina has made great strides in refining SUL's purchasing procedures, and ensuring that those procedures are available to all.  The SBS Consul site, which she initiated, is a great example of this, and she has also met with many of you personally to review those processes.

One of the news features in today's Stanford Report highlights the newly renovated Lathrop Library. The report details the many new amenities of the library, including its vast amount of space, which has allowed for more resources readily available from the East Asia Library, more open and closed study areas, event spaces, and classrooms. The article also boasts of Lathrop's state-of-the-art classroom and state-of-the-art technology throughout.

Stanford Quad corner and column

SUL has the following new position this week:

Technical Systems Architect, Academic Computing Services, Stanford University Libraries (#64032)

For a complete description of open positions within SUL, go to the Stanford Library Jobs page.

"It’s hard for scientists to do the cool things their colleagues are excited about without basic computing skills, and impossible for them to know what other new things are possible. Our ambition is to change that: not just to make scientists more productive today, but to allow them to be part of the changes that are transforming science in front of our eyes." ("Software Carpentry: lessons learned" in F1000 Research).

"We couldn't agree more with these words from Greg Wilson, founder of Software Carpentry (SWC)."

Which is why the Data Management Services group has expanded from hosting its first SWC bootcamp back in January to hosting three more bootcamps this summer. Nearly 100 graduate students, post-docs, and other researchers and instructors attended one of our summer bootcamp events, which were held in conjunction with specific campus groups: the Department of Biophysics, the Stanford Biosciences Student Association, and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
