The horse in motion

Two Stanford University Library branches have recently launched stunning new websites: Special Collections & University Archives and the Art & Architecture Library.

Both of these sites take full advantage of the many features available on the new SUL website. Most visible on each site is a content-rich slide show that highlights the unique collections and activities of these two libraries. The Art & Architecture site currently features an online exhibit of works in its current physical exhibition, "Models from the Architectural Design Program" (which you should rush over to see: it closes on June 1). The online exhibit features beautiful original photography by our Assistant Art Librarian Anna Fishaut.
