September 17, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

Stanford's Science & Engineering Libraries announce a new Drop-in Research Consulting service designed to help science students with a wide variety of software, coding, and data issues. The focus will be on assisting grad students and other scientific researchers with questions related to research projects.

Visit us at the Branner Earth Sciences Library on Thursdays from 1-3pm in October and November, or consult with us remotely during these times via zoom at stanford.zoom.us/j/133673065.

Stanford Libraries & The Carpentries

Stanford Libraries SERG/Carpentries Workshop Series

Stanford University is a member organization of The Carpentries, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching foundational skills for research computing skills. This partnership is managed by Dr. Amy Hodge of the Stanford University Libraries, and is open to the entire campus community. Over the past few quarters the Stanford University Libraries have offered the popular two-day Software Carpentry workshops as an open enrollment to anyone on campus. Other campus organizations have also run and will continue to run similar versions of these workshops.

by Catherine Nicole Coleman

We are excited to welcome Quentin Verwaerde of the French national library school, ENSSIB, to Stanford Libraries for term-long internship. He’ll mainly be working with Nicole Coleman and Sarah Sussman, but is looking forward to meeting folks around the library. To introduce him to SUL, we’ve asked him to tell us a bit about himself  -

Leonardo's Library Spotlight

Leonardo's Library: Online

September 4, 2019
by Benjamin L Albritton

In May, 2019, three colleagues launched an exhibit to mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death by celebrating the books and ideas that shaped his world. Leonardo's Library: The World of a Renaissance Reader will be on display through mid-October in the Green Library Bing Wing. The three colleagues, Prof. Paula Findlen, John Mustain (Emeritus Curator of Rare Books), and Elizabeth Fischbach (exhibits designer and manager for Stanford Libraries Special Collections), brought a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and experience to a real blockbuster demonstration of what can be accomplished when Stanford faculty, libraries, and a team of exceptional students come together to tell a story with our collections. We're happy to announce a new online exhibit, https://exhibits.stanford.edu/leonardo, to parallel and augment the physical experience and preserve a memory of this event for posterity.

Protocols.io Premium Edition Now Available for Stanford Users

September 3, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

The Premium version of protocols.io -- a collaborative platform and preprint server for methods and protocols -- is now available free to all Stanford users! Funded by the Dean of Research and supported by Stanford Libraries, protocols.io allows you to create step-by-step detailed, interactive and dynamic protocols that can be run on mobile or web. This platform is useful for researchers in any discipline that uses a step-by-step methodology, including life sciences, engineering, chemistry, data science, and computational social sciences.

  • Creating Protocols: Protocols can be made from scratch or uploaded and converted from an existing Word or PDF document quickly and easily. In addition, if you have a particularly complex protocol, the staff at protocols.io will import a protocol for you.
  • DOIs & Publishing: Using the Premium version of protocols.io, you can share your protocols privately with labmates and collaborators, or publish them publicly with a Digitial Object Identifier (DOI) via protocol.io's open access repository. Getting a DOI for your protocol will make it easier for others to find and cite your protocols and give you credit for your work. And when you link from articles you publish to one of your own published protocols, you make your research articles more reproducible.
  • ORCID Connection: You can also connect your protocols.io account with your ORCID iD, which will allow protocols.io to automatically post information about your published protocols onto the Works section of your ORCID record.
