I‘m very pleased to announce that Richenda Brim joined Stanford Libraries on November 10, 2014, as our new Head of Preservation.  Richenda has had a rich history in Preservation, from the repair of books to paper conservation, from the formulation of preservation assessments to recovery plans.  Richenda comes to us from the Getty Research Institute where she most recently has served as Librarian for Administration and Special Projects, focusing on collection digitization, recovery planning and grant-funded projects.

SUL Rosette

Marina Verdian has resigned her position as Special Project Manager, and will be leaving SUL as of December 1st. The Facilities team is very sad to see her go, particularly during Big Game week, since she will be leaving us to take on the position of Facilities Director at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley! Rivalries aside, this is an excellent opportunity for Marina, and I hope you will join me in congratulating her on her new role.

Stanford IT services is now providing a video conferencing solution for the entire university--for free! Stanford has partnered with Blue Jeans to offer this service. Many in the Stanford community have become very familiar with using Skype and Google Hangouts. These tools have a number of limitations and Blue Jeans is, by far, a much better video conferencing service compared with these competitors.
