All Stanford Libraries' staff should read these guidelines and follow them when creating and editing their People Pages.

What are People pages? 

People pages are library staff profile pages on the new library website. These pages provide contact information, photos (optional), and additional information about library staff.

Where will People pages show up?

All People pages will be searchable from the library home page, and can also be linked to other types of pages (e.g., Project or Department pages, or as authors of blog posts or news articles). Subject Librarians' People pages and People pages of the directors who report directly to the University Librarian will appear under "About  >  People" on the Library home page. 

Who will have People pages?

Our thanks to everyone who has been submitting feedback about the new library website.  Your feedback is really helpful, especially as we try to wrap up content for the official site launch. We've taken a moment to post some answers to the most frequently asked questions we've received.

Where is the staff directory? 

There is not a comprehensive staff directory page on the new website. Because the new website has been designed first and foremost to streamline patron's access to information they most need, we did not include a listing of all staff in all departments. Patrons can search for staff by name in the website as well as in StanfordWho. 

We know that many library staff find the comprehensive staff directory quite useful, and are exploring ways to provide that in the future.

The International Image Interoperability Framework (http://lib.stanford.edu/iiif) is an initiative driven by several major research and national libraries to enable the rich and robust delivery of digital images through common interfaces, and to spur the development of open source and commercial software solutions in this space.

The IIIF Working Group invites comment and feedback on a proposed API for the the delivery of images via a standard http request. The full specification can be found at:

http://library.stanford.edu/iiif/image-api

The IIIF Image API specifies a web service that returns an image in response to a standard http or https request. The URL can specify the region, size, rotation, quality characteristics and format of the requested image. A URL can also be constructed to request basic technical information about the image to support client applications.

Who will have People Pages?

All regular Stanford Libraries staff members will have a “People Page” that includes (by default) their phone number and email address as listed in StanfordWho.  Staff members are encouraged to add additional information, such as a photograph, a description of your role in the library, your professional activities, your education and your publications.

Where will People Pages actually show up?

Subject specialists’ People Pages and People pages of the directors who report directly to the University Librarian will appear under “About  >  People” on the Library home page.

All People Pages will be searchable from the library home page.

All People Pages can be linked to other types of pages (e.g., project or department pages, or as authors of blog posts or news articles).  This way, any staff member can be associated with the projects in which he or she is involved.
