In February and March, approximately 357,000 new files representing over 14,000 items were accessioned into the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR). These materials include -- but are not limited to -- items from the Watershed Map of India, the People's Computer Company, and Revs Digital Library
You might not think of worms when someone mentions neuroscience, but it turns out the tiny, transparent worm C. elegans is a great organism for studying the senses. That's in part because researchers have previously mapped the locations and synaptic connections of each of the 302 neurons of these 1mm long creatures.
More recently, researchers Juan Cueva and Miriam Goodman have performed studies using C. elegans to examine how certain touch receptor neurons are activated. They generated nearly 3300 electron micrographs of worm cross sections that have been preserved in the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) and are now available for download and reuse by other researchers around the world (see below for links to the images).
Four new digital collections were added to SearchWorks via Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) online deposit during the month of March. These collections take advantage of recently released functionality that provides researchers with new rich discovery and access capabilities for finding and working with digital collection content.
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.
