The Manuscripts Division of the Department of Special Collections exists to arrange, describe, preserve, and make available documents and born-digital materials of enduring historic value, both as intellectual items and as historical artifacts, to support the research needs of the undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and other scholars at Stanford University and beyond. Stanford University Library subject curators actively seek out collections to enhance our holdings. Since 2009, Special Collections has been involved in developing a Born-Digital Program in collaboration with the Digital Library Systems and Services Department.
Earlier this year we introduced our student workers and some of the projects they were involved in this summer.
We are happy to announce an update to one of the projects – the Road & Track Magazine collection.
Our small library community in Redwood City is saying goodbye to another colleague.
It is with a very heavy heart that we say goodbye to our amazing colleague Michelle Paquette - we wish her all the best in her new position at Smith College Libraries.
