Many researchers rely on open source software for data analysis, but lack of documentation on how to use the software can sometimes be an issue. In these situations, it's up to someone in the community to step up and create better resources to help people learn how to get the most out of these tools.

Stanford biology undergrad Nathan Cho found himself in just this situation recently while working on his honors thesis. Cho's project involved studying how stem cell development in plants affects the timing of the cell cycle, the process by which cells grow and divide. Analysis of his microscopy images required him to use open source software from the Max Plank Institute called MorphoGraphX.

Since its introduction in 2008, the EEMs system has been the gateway for adding thousands of digital items to Stanford's library collections, with full catalog records, workflows to support IP rights and payment needs, and persistent access via the Stanford Digital Repository.

The first week in May marks the annual celebration of Children’s Book Week. I don’t know about you but I love to revisit old favorites or introduce a new reader to the joys that await within the pages.  Why not celebrate Children’s Book Week too?  Come to Cubberley Library and pick out a book to celebrate.

You can also go to http://everychildareader.net/cbw/ for additional information. There are downloadable bookmarks and activities at the site as well as a downloadable comic book.
