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.

We are excited to report that "Capturing and Processing Born-Digital Files in the STOP AIDS Project Records: A Case Study" has just been published in the Journal of Western Archives (2013) and is available online.

In September 2012, the Manuscripts Division of the Stanford University Libraries Department of Special Collections and University Archives completed a one-year National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC)-funded project to process the records of the STOP AIDS Project, an HIV prevention non-profit organization in San Francisco, California.
