The University Archives and DLSS are pleased to announce that the Project South transcripts are now online. The transcripts document meetings and interviews with civil rights workers in the South recorded by several Stanford students affiliated with the campus radio station KZSU during the summer of 1965. The project was sponsored by the Institute of American History at Stanford.

"[T]he oceans have always belonged to the clams."
At least from a metabolic perspective, according to Earth Sciences Professor Jonathan Payne and his co-authors. The researchers have just published an article in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences about the struggle for dominance between brachiopods and bivalves.
Fourteen new digital collections representing content from SUL, Image, Video and Multimedia Systems - Stanford University and Hoover Archives, are now available in SearchWorks. These collections take advantage of recently released SearchWorks functionality that provides researchers with new rich discovery and access capabilities for finding and working with digital collection content. In addition to the 11 collections from Stanford University Archives that Daniel Hartwig blogged about, researchers may now discover:
The University Archives and DLSS are pleased to announce that eleven digital collections have been added to SearchWorks and can be accessed from the Selected Digital Collections link on the SearchWorks homepage. Representing a variety of formats ranging from manuscripts and photographs to audio and video, the collections include more than 10,000 files and span the history of the University.
In January, approximately 137,000 new files representing over 35,500 items were accessioned into the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR). These materials include -- but are not limited to -- items from the Jarnydce Collection, TRAIL Maps Project, and the Revs Digital Library.

The Stanford University Libraries (SUL) have a rich and diverse collection of digital content. Users can discover collections and content from the Stanford Digital Repository through the library website, library catalog (SearchWorks), and persistent citation (PURL) pages. SUL also develops robust, custom-built websites for selected collections (see Parker on the Web and the French Revolution Digital Archive) that provide a rich discovery environment and a range of features that enable users to more effectively work with the collection items. But these sites require significant investment in time and development resources to produce and maintain, limiting the number and variety SUL can support.
If you've ever been there, you know that Hopkins Marine Station (HMS) is a special place. But it's not just a special place for those of us who love the gorgeous views; it's a special place for scientists as well. Which is why it's such a treat that researchers at Hopkins Marine Station continue to make more of their historical research data available to others through the Stanford Digital Repository.
