The overflow collections that are housed in SAL-Newark have had a significant shelving upgrade. Late last year, SUL Facilities initiated a project to relocate and repurpose shelving that was originally purchased for the overflow warehouse set up during the SAL3.2 buildout. The shelving is not only almost new, but also much deeper than the original Newark shelving, and thus better able to accommodate the newspapers housed in Newark. The deeper shelving allows for a much more efficent layout, with both increased shelving capacity and wider aisles.

You may have seen the article in the Stanford Report yesterday about the critical security vulnerability that Apple announced on Feb.21. This vulnerability has been addressed in the following ways:
1) All managed Macs have had the patch installed on them;
2) we are still in the process of having all Stanford-owned iPad\iPhone users update their devices.
If you don't know if you have a managed or unmanaged Mac, please contact your Expert Partner or me (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are working on an unmanaged Mac, you need to install the patch on your computer, unless you have installed BigFix and are using it to keep your computer updated.
Glen Worthey, Head of SUL's Digital Initiatives Group and Digital Humanities Librarian, recently posted a blog item on The Stanford Digital Humanities website titled Literary texts and the library in the digital age, or, How library DH is made. In this post, Glen provides a slightly edited version of a paper he gave at the 2013 Annual Conference of the American Library Association in Chicago.
