Stacey Maples - Stanford Geospatial Center
by Julie Sweetkind-Singer

Where's that whistling coming from that we keep hearing around Branner Library?  It's our new Geospatial Manager, Stacey Maples. Stace is a self-described "geospatial Swiss Army knife." He considers his love of all things geospatial "pathological" and states that with great glee. Stace comes to us from Yale University where he was the Geographic Information Systems Specialist & Instruction Coordinator. He spent 9 years in the Map Department of Sterling Memorial Library working on GIS data collection development, directly helping students and faculty with their projects, provided technical support for geotechnologies in research and teaching, and created their GIS technology instruction program.

The Other Dream Team movie poster

Stanford University Libraries invites you to celebrate Lithuania’s independence on March 11 at Cubberley Auditorium.

The evening will feature “The Other Dream Team,” a film about the remarkable story of the Lithuanian basketball team that won the 1992 Olympic Bronze medal less than a year after Lithuania broke away from the Soviet Union. The film director Marius Markevicius will be present to answer questions after the film.

It is with very mixed feelings that I announce Anna Fishaut is leaving the Art & Architecture Library after seven and a half years of service. Anna is targeting a new career in user experience design and will embark on a course in San Francisco to obtain the necessary training and credentials.
