SDR Deposit of the Month: Crocodile constraints

Lots of interesting research is deposited into the Stanford Digital Repository every month, but when the research is about crocodiles, you know we have to know more!

While there are at least 26 species of crocodiles around today, many more forms of crocodiles have existed over the past 250 million years. Extinct crocodiles include those that were both much larger and much smaller than those living today.

Guest blogger Adria Castellucci, librarian for Rare Books and Library Collections at the Australian Museum, describes the impact of her request to digitize the earliest guide for visitors published by the Australian Museum, which outlined not only the contents but the physical arrangement of the specimens. The 1873 Guide to the contents of the Australian museum is an important work in their institution's history, and including Stanford's digital object makes their collection complete.

by Hannah Frost

It’s back to school time! As students return to campus for the new academic year, we look back at the stream of undergraduate theses and other capstone works published in the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) by graduating students last year. As usual, it was a healthy crop! The 2019 year is particularly noteworthy due to the high number of deposited works distinguished with prizes and medals.
