The library website continues to grow, and with growth comes change. We are happy to announce that early next week some high priority changes to the site's architecture will go live.
It has been a fun and rewarding experience working with and getting to know Joseph through the SUL internship program. Joseph's 'home base' was Social Science Data and Software (SSDS) and staff members welcomed his help with a number of projects. Joseph blended in quickly and we soon learned that Joseph is remarkably versatile and always willing to learn new skills. Before long, he began supporting both SSDS and SUL IT services in Green!
Undergraduates are a hard-working group, and nowhere is this truer than here at Stanford. Our undergraduates make frequent contributions to scientific research all over campus, and important contributions are important to preserve. Which is why today's Deposit of the Week comes to us from student Tessaly Jen.
Shirley Brice Heath writes, "Adults read for meaning while children look for meaning." (Handbook of Research on Children's and Young Adult Literature, p. 40) Nowhere is this more evident than in picturebooks where the story is told entirely in pictures. Kelly Roll has created a list of Wordless picturebooks that can be found in Cubberley Library's collection.
In June 2009, University Organist Dr. Robert Huw Morgan embarked on a year-long series of recitals in honor of the 25th anniversary of the majestic Fisk-Nanney organ in Stanford’s Memorial Church. The programs consisted, quite simply, of the complete works for organ by another career organist, Johann Sebastian Bach. The Stanford Music Library is pleased to present streaming audio of these fourteen recitals through our website.
Seven lucky students from Eastside College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto have earned a gig at the Stanford Libraries for a summer internship. The interns have been placed in different libraries from Green to Meyer, to Music and Biology.
I am Veronica Rubalcava and I am the co-coordinator for the internship program. When I heard about the internship program, I was pleased to know that an opportunity for first-generation college students was being offered.
The Forensics / Born-Digital lab recently received a request from the Earth Sciences Library to recover the data off of a Zip disk. The Zip disk format was created by Iomega corporation in 1994 and was a large floppy disk like format with a capacity of 100 MB. The drives are no longer commercially available but the Forensics / Born-Digital lab has a Zip disk drive to recover data from this format.
Transformation is a common theme among the eight final student team projects of this year's ME310 cohort. Take, for example, Idéum, which proposes how to transform an old building in a Swedish coastal town into an innovation center for Volvo workers who insist "that they [are] not innovative people." The students ask, and then answer, "How might we build confidence and make a user feel like an innovative genius, with a tool that actually helps develop creative skills?"
