The Stanford News recently published a photo essay of the Stanford Libraries Conservation Lab.

"In the Conservation Lab of Stanford University Libraries, every story has a happy ending.

Each story begins with the arrival of a university treasure – a rare book, map, serial or manuscript that needs repair, or a one-of-a-kind object that needs a custom-made box.

The university is conducting a staff engagement survey between October 12 and 30, 2015. I’d like to encourage you to participate if you have not completed the survey already.

The survey results will be used to drive strategic planning and decisions related to the workplace, both locally and institutionally, for years to come, as they will reflect the collective staff experience and show what is working well and what needs improvement.
