Japanese souvenir print (dated 1879) collected by the East Asia Library Special Collection. The title is Jōshū Kusatsu onsenzu narabini hakkei.
by Jidong Yang

On July 1-2, 2015, the East Asia Library of Stanford University Libraries will host an international academic conference titled Beyond the Book: A Conference on Unique and Rare Primary Sources for East Asian Studies Collected in North America. The conference will bring librarians, archivists, and scholars from all over North America to present research papers on less-known materials, mostly in non-book formats. It is our hope that the conference will draw scholarly attention to those scattered, yet valuable, resources for East Asian Studies.

On June 2nd, 8 am Pacific / 11 am Eastern, eLife Sciences invites you to join an in-depth exploration of the open-source publishing technology behind eLife Lens.

eLife Lens improves the reading and use of scientific articles by making it possible to explore figures, figure descriptions, references, and more without losing your place in the article text. While most online research articles tend to replicate print, eLife Lens takes greater advantage of the Internet's flexibility; readers can absorb key elements in an article more readily, more quickly, and more effectively.
