  1. The Quarantine Atlas: Talk by Laura Bliss

    Maps mattered during the pandemic—not just data-driven maps that pointed us to spikes in new infections or hospitalizations. In 2020, Bloomberg CityLab asked readers to send in homemade maps of what their worlds look like after coronavirus. The hundreds of maps received were so many windows into the sprawling economic, environmental, and social sea changes that swept the world along with the virus. All together, they are a unique—and deeply personal—document of the pandemic and how it changed our daily lives. But why, and how? Laura's talk will expand on how these maps served as a powerful medium for making sense of a year of grief, tumult, and extended uncertainty. The talk will take place Friday, May 21, 2021 on Zoom and follows the schedule below:2:45pm PDT: Zoom opens3:00pm PDT: Talk by Laura Bliss, followed by Q&A.Register using this form.If you need any disability-related accommodation, please contact the David Rumsey Map Center by email: rumseymapcenter@stanford.edu.

  2. Expanded discovery now available for Spotlight at Stanford exhibits

    We’re pleased to announce expanded discovery for Spotlight at Stanford exhibits is now available via library.stanford.edu and searchworks.stanford.edu. Our colleagues on the DLSS Access Team have recently added an Exhibits tile to the bento search options, adding another discovery point for Spotlight at Stanford. There are different ways to conduct a search that will yield exhibit results. One option is to go to library.stanford.edu, and enter a keyword that is in an exhibit title or subtitle. In the example below, the search term is “Stanford”     Click on Exhibits to jump to the Exhibits bento box, as shown below - or simply scroll down. Note at the bottom of the bento search result, you can click to expand the results if more are available. You are also provided with the option to search across all exhibits for items that contain the keyword “Stanford” or you can enter a new keyword to search across all exhibits.     You can also access the bento from SearchWorks, by selecting "all" from the dropdown menu under "catalog". If you have already done a search, you'll see Exhibit results matching the same keyword(s). Please note that your keyword must be in an exhibit title or subtitle for it to appear as a search result.     Thank you to Chris Beer, Gary Geisler, Jessie Keck, Jack Reed, Mark Matienzo, Sarah Seestone, Camille Villa and Jennifer Vine for this important discovery enhancement work.
