Databases of the week - Accelerate your research by using xSearch, Funding Resources, and Chemical Safety search
One challenge that researchers face is where to look for information. Google Scholar is popular but doesn’t include the wide array of resources licensed by the Stanford Libraries. Google Scholar (GS) search results are also limited by the last time GS crawled a website. Current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford are able to use three customized collections of databases to find needed information. Developed by the Stanford Libraries and Deep Web Technologies, these databases are grouped by subject categories and multiple subject categories can be searched at one time. Up to 100 citations are available from each database and the information is retrieved in real-time.
Who could have guessed it? Player pianos rolls, those curious scrolls of punched, now brittle and yellowed paper you might come across at the thrift store, are at the center of new research underway at – where else? -- the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA).
Stop! What you are about to read is good stuff but if you also register for GISDay@Stanford 2019, it will be even better.
Please note that registration is currently restricted to Stanford affiliates. If you would like to attend but are not a Stanford affiliate, please add yourself to the waiting list and we will release unclaimed tickets the week before the event.
