Branner Library News
Branner Earth Sciences Library is delighted to announce the addition of Alma Parada to our staff as the Earth and Environmental Sciences Librarian. Alma comes to us from the Dekas Lab run by Anne Dekas, an Assistant Professor in Earth Systems Science. In her role as a Postdoctoral Scholar, she has managed and assisted in research project, provided assistance and training to students and staff, and provided instruction to students on literature searches and data retrieval.
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.

Stanford Libraries has so many maps in its collection, but not enough Yelp reviews to help you figure out which ones you should look at. We are here to help.
