Regan Murphy Kao, Ph.D., paints a picture of her role as Japanese Studies Librarian and communicates its intellectual excitement in an article aimed at graduate students considering alternative careers.

Stanford Magazine interviewed John Mustain, rare books curator, about the collection of over 700 leaves from the history of early printing given to the Libraries by Donn Faber Downing and Letitia Leigh Sanders. Mustain, as paraphrased in the article, “expects the collection to be of great value to scholars. Historians still know relatively little about the extent of the early printing community, or even what its members thought was worth printing, aside from Bibles and a few other classics. This collection could help fill some of those gaps.”
