SDR Deposit of the Week: Rocks and sustainable energy

When you think about rocks, you might not think about energy, but Christopher Zahasky does. Chris has been looking at vesicular basaltic volcanic rocks, like the one shown below, and the way fluid flows through them (see the graphical abstract for his recent article above). "These volcanic rocks are an important source of geothermal energy and provide a potential location for large-scale subsurface carbon dioxide storage for greenhouse gas emissions mitigation," Chris told us. "Understanding fluid flow is important for more effectively using these types of geologic systems for sustainable energy resource development."

SDR Deposit of the Week: Optimizing wind farms

July 1, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

Every year, more and more Stanford researchers use the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) to share the work they have done in a way that goes beyond just publishing a paper -- they provide direct access to the actual data files so that others may also benefit from their efforts. Graduate student Michael Howland is one such forward-thinking Cardinal who recently deposited the data associated with his article "Wind farm power optimization through wake steering," out today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

SDR Deposit of the Month: All in the Family

By many measures, Stanford is a big place. Two typical measures: the historic campus (6th largest in the US) stretches across 8,180 acres, and is home to over 31,000 students, faculty, and staff this academic year. A random measure: for the JSTOR database subscription provided by the Libraries, Stanford's institution classification level is “very large".

But some days, Stanford feels like a small, close-knit town where degrees of separation between community members rarely exceed two or three.

When Cathy Aster, Product and Service Manager in Digital Library Systems and Services (DLSS) at Stanford University asked if I’d like to do some guest blogging for Stanford Libraries, I was surprised and grateful. As a 2019 Cohort Fellow in the joint, IMLS-funded Council on Library and Information Resources’ Digital Library Federation (CLIR/DLF) + HBCU Library Alliance Authenticity Project

Spotlight on the transcontinental railroad

The completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869 marked an important milestone in the history of the United States with the joining of the populated east with the growing cities and towns of the west. Stanford University, with its connection to Leland Stanford and Timothy Hopkins, holds in its libraries an impressive array of materials related to this monumental achievement including the often overlooked contributions of the Chinese railroad workers.
