Scientific Imaging of Diego Rivera's 'Pan American Unity' Mural

Stanford Libraries is proud to announce a new Spotlight exhibit: Diego Rivera's San Francisco Masterpiece - Virtual Preservation of "Pan American Unity". The exhibit is devoted to rich scientific imaging of Diego Rivera's 1940 mural Unión de la Expresión Artistica del Norte y Sur de este Continente (The Marriage of the Artistic Expression of the North and of the South on this Continent), also known as Pan American Unity. It highlights 3D photgrammetric documentation of the mural created by Cultural Heritage Imaging as part of an arrangement between City College of San Franscisco and SFMOMA to display the mural at SFMOMA from 2021 to 2023. This exhibit takes advantage of both the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) and the Mirador viewer to allow users to explore the mural's colors and surface textures, the progress of the work as it was created, and work done by SFMOMA and Site & Studio Conservation to describe the condition of the mural.

Stanford researchers can now automatically populate their ORCID record with publication data from Stanford Profiles. This new feature allows researchers, many of whom have built out extensive lists of their publications and research outputs in Stanford Profiles over the years, to make their ORCID record equally rich. Further, as they add new publications to their Stanford Profile, their ORCID record will stay in sync.

The Stanford ORCID Initiative’s goal is to maximize the presence and value of ORCID iDs for all Stanford researchers. ORCID iDs are unique identifiers for researchers that help them get credit for their work; they also connect systems, making research processes and administration better and easier.
