Cubberley Education Library news
Join the quest to penning your own novel this month with the Stanford Storytelling Project and Cecil H. Green Library!
National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo, is an annual, Internet-based movement where participants from all over the world write a 50,000 word manuscript during the month of November. Writers, both new and published, hype you during the process so you’re never alone during your creative endeavor.
There are days when staying in bed and pulling the covers over one’s head seems like the best course of action in an increasingly tumultuous world. At Cubberley Education Library we have put together a display of children’s books that we hope will inspire not only you but the next generation. Some of the titles are about giants in the fight against injustice such as Martin Luther King. Others highlight that one person who stood up for change. Please come read about the youngest marcher, Audrey Faye Hicks, or Lakas who protested the sale of the home where he and many others lived.
Stanford Libraries has posted five videos on its YouTube channel. They are targeted for new undergraduate students, and are required watching for the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) students, who come to the library for workshops on information literacy. The videos are helpful to all researchers! These videos are part of the department of Learning and Outreach's effort to "flip the classroom".
