It's summertime again, and we are closing the final chapter of this pandemic. As you head off to visit family and friends, you might need a good book to travel with - something to take your mind off the anticipation. You're in luck! We have been social distancing for a year, and we like to read even when there are other things to do. These staff picks from the Science and Engineering Resource Group offer the perfect distraction.

Dimensions is a large citation and abstract database that covers all subject areas and provides free access to citations from research publications. Stanford has a subscription to Dimensions Plus, a fee-based service, that covers millions of research publications connected by more than 1.4 billion citations, supporting grants, datasets, clinical trials, patents, and policy documents.
“Captions make online content more accessible. If you’re in a noisy environment, trying to keep the volume down, or are part of the 466 million people in the world who are deaf or hard of hearing, having captions lets you follow along to whatever content you are watching. Unfortunately, captions aren’t always available for every piece of content.

A major theme emerging from the December 2020 NIH Workshop on Ultra Large Chemistry Databases is the essential role of the IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI) in our ability to link and query across large and diverse chemistry data resources. Therefore, we now seek to bring the chemistry community together for an update on the development of the InChI and a discussion of its use in chemistry, biochemistry, and related research domains. Speakers will report on developments in the InChI field, usage of InChI in their organization, as well as challenges and areas not yet covered by InChI. The virtual workshop is scheduled for three half-days and will include short talks and panel discussions.
Are you looking for help with coding, maps, or data this quarter? Maybe you have questions about Arduinos, Rapsberry Pis, or other micro-controllers and processers? Do you need to borrow workbench tools or a 3D printer? If this sounds like you, we may have just the expert you are looking for!
The Mirador development team at Stanford is happy to announce the release of Mirador v3.0.0. This release represents the first major release of the Mirador software since January 2019. Mirador 3 offers a fresh new redesigned interface and API while keeping many of the well-loved comparison features that Mirador has been known for.
Notable new features in Mirador 3 includes:
Stanford's Science & Engineering Libraries' Experts will be offering 1:1 Research Consulting appointments via Zoom during the fall quarter. These appointments will focus on assisting grad students and other scientific researchers with software, coding, and data issues and questions related to research projects.
The service will be staffed by the following librarians and staff from our Science and Engineering Libraries:
