The Stanford University Libraries are hosting a one-year trial of Overleaf Pro for those who use LaTex for writing articles or dissertations and for those working on collaborative projects. We would like your feedback on the Overleaf trial. Are you using Overleaf? Do you have suggestions for the Overleaf development team? Use this link to provide your comments.

Construction of marine facilities is an expensive endeavor, with platforms built in deep waters costing in the billions of dollars. That makes it important to do it right the first time. Research at the John A. Blume Center for Earthquake Engineering has helped to advance the offshore industry's knowledge of how to build these structures more reliably.
Student theses and research reports from visiting scholars in the Reliability of Marine Structures (RMS) Program are now preserved and available through the Stanford Digital Repository.
Eight new digital collections are now available in SearchWorks. These collections take advantage of SearchWorks' ability to provide users with rich discovery and access capabilities for finding and working with digital collection content.
Abstract: Primarily fragments, these specimens were acquired to demonstrate the development of writing in the western world. A variety of scripts are represented, from Carolingian minuscule to the humanistic hands and the "cancelleresca."

Weather is often a hot topic for discussion (no pun intended!), even here in the usually moderate Bay Area where thoughts on the current drought are frequently proffered. But our discussions of the weather would be baseless if it weren't for weather data and our ability to track weather changes over time.
Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove has been tracking the weather in their neck of the woods for years. Detailed data from this weather monitoring project is now available online via the Stanford Digital Repository in the Hopkins Marine Station collection.
Established in 1965, the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is the world’s repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Containing the results of over half-a-million x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses this unique database of accurate 3D structures has become an essential resource to scientists around the world.
The 2015 version of the Cambridge Structural Database System has been released, providing access to over 700,000 curated structures.
Overleaf is a new collaborative writing and publishing system developed by the team behind the popular WriteLaTeX editor. Overleaf is designed to make the process of writing, editing and producing scientific papers much quicker for both authors and publishers. Overleaf/WriteLaTeX can also be linked to your Mendeley account for quick import of your Mendeley reference library.
The Stanford University Libraries are sponsoring a one year free trial of Overleaf/WriteLaTeX for all students, faculty and staff who would like to use a collaborative, online LaTeX editor for their projects.
December 13 is a momentous date in the history of the Stanford Digital Repository. It's the date in 2012 when the very first research data item was deposited in the SDR through our online deposit application. Which makes Dec. 13, 2014, the second anniversary of this historic occasion!
Who was our first depositor, how did he find us, and what did he deposit?
