Communities using the LOCKSS Software have collaboratively passed an important milestone and are now preserving over 1000 “long tail” journal publishers, smaller publishers who have ten or fewer journals. Content from these publishers are most at-risk for loss, making preservation vital to guarantee future access to the material for research and teaching.

A faculty-led project developed by the Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR) was recently featured in Stanford Report, which describes it thus: “...a digital humanities project led by Stanford historian Tom Mullaney is creating a map that illustrates the ongoing and multifaceted impact of funeral reform and grave relocation in China. In the last 15 years, grave relocation has been taking place in China on a massive scale. To date, some 15 million deceased people's remains have been moved.” CIDR developers David McClure and Karl Grossner, together with a small SUL team, have been working on the project with Professor Mullaney over the past 18 months, and Mullaney presented a synopsis of the project at the Stanford Libraries’ annual donor event in October, 2015.

A new cloud printing system has been implemented in the Stanford Libraries. The Stanford Print Service, managed by Vice Provost of Teaching & Learning (VPTL), is the result of an initiative to replace the old and outdated printing system that lacked features resident in more up-to-date printing systems. Printing and copying are essential services offered to library patrons and this new system greatly enhances these services.
