In February of this year, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) published a memo directing federal science agencies “to develop plans to make the published results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication … Such results include peer-reviewed publications and digital data.” Funding agency responses to this directive could dramatically change the process of scientific information exchange and fundamentally alter how scientific research is performed and archived at US universities and government laboratories.

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.
