Kristen Valenti will join the Silicon Valley Archives (SVA) in the new position of Exhibits Coordinator, effective 1 September. The SVA is a unit of the History of Science & Technology Collections in the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Group; we will be located in Hohbach Hall when it opens in January 2022, alongside the very exhibit space that Kristen will manage.
Imagine a tool which contains ebooks, images, podcasts, videos, ephemera, magazines and journals. Where architecture, art, critical theory, design, expanded cinema, and visual culture come together in one place. This is Library Stack. Give it a try. I'd appreciate your feedback.
This is part 1 of a 2 part blog post series about COVID-19 pandemic data deposited into the Stanford Digital Repository by Stanford's Big Local News team.
We are excited to announce the release of a new, online self-deposit application for the Stanford Digital Repository, with a brand-new user interface. The new application was designed with a focus on improved accessibility and better future support for Open Access as well as other campus research and digital library needs.
Much of the content from the old SDR online deposit system has been migrated to the new system. Some collections that originated in the old system were not migrated because they were complete and are no longer growing, but these collections remain preserved in the SDR and accessible via SearchWorks and our repository administrative systems.
In total, 187 collections containing 4558 items were migrated to the new system.
The video below provides a brief (2.5 min.) overview of the new application.
