After 36 years of service, John Rawlings is retiring from Stanford University Libraries. While we're sad to see John go, we're excited that he'll be able to devote more time to his many interests in natural history and outdoor pursuits.

Join us in celebrating John's long Stanford career, Thursday, March 6th, from 4-6 in the Rotunda of Green Library.

John began his tenure at Stanford in 1978 in the Collection Development Program in Green Library. Transitioning to a role as a Subject Librarian and Bibliographer, John’s initial assignments were Linguistics, followed by French and Italian Studies.

Intaglio is one of the oldest of these processes and is the focus of the current exhibition, "Intaglio: The Art of Incision."
