Stanford IT Services announced a new tool to secure your wireless connection. Just like there is a push to encrypt all hard drives, encrypting data in transit is just as important. Many users on campus have been using Eduroam wireless network to obtain a secure wireless connection to the network, but will now have a new option from which to choose.

After almost 16 years of exemplary service, Carol Hoffmann is retiring from Stanford University Libraries to enjoy a well deserved “life of leisure” with her immediate family. She and her husband will remain in the area for the next few months, but may relocate to their old stomping grounds in Ohio to be close to lots of family and longtime friends.

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.
