I am delighted and excited to announce that Lauren Sorensen is joining Stanford Libraries as a new staff member of Digital Library Systems and Services. Lauren’s first day will be Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
A pair of wooden sandals carved and worn by Songye people in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, early to mid-20th century (Object IDs 84.599A and 84.599B).
Once again the Digital Production Group (DPG) is partnering with the Stanford University Archaeology Collections (SUAC) team to bring 3D scanning technology into the classroom to enrich the study of artifacts by Stanford students. This autumn we were invited to participate in the class, “African Archive Beyond Colonization”, a seminar co-taught by Dr. Sarah Derbew and Postdoctoral Scholar Denise Lim, who is breaking new ground at Stanford with the Africa Collections Project.
The New York Times TDM Archive (1980-2020) is now available to Stanford University researchers for text data mining (TDM) research projects. Researchers can now access article text and metadata, encoded as XML objects, of the New York Times content covering 1980-2020.
Stanford Libraries staff met virtually on December 9, 2021 for our quarterly all staff meeting and to honor staff who are marking employment anniversaries. Congratulations to all and many thanks for your years of service!
