IT Open House 2015 logo

This year's IT Open House, "What's in IT for U?", will be held October 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Tresidder Oak Lounge and Meeting Rooms.

This annual event is a chance for Stanford University faculty, staff, and students to meet face-to-face under one roof with people who provide and support Stanford's IT infrastructure and services. Also at hand are many of the university's key third-party vendors and industry partners, who also help sponsor the event.

A Chrome tab extension has been developed by DLSS' own Jack Reed, so now you can view the current date and time with a map from the David Rumsey Map Collection.

Random maps from the Rumsey Collection will be pulled in every time you open a new tab. A great way for anyone to explore the collection!

Over the next several weeks, there will be two major (and related) changes to public printing and copying in the Stanford Libraries driven by changes that the office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) is implementing to create a more streamlined, efficient, and robust printing and copying service.

Founding members of the IIIF-C

Global consortium forms to standardize and improve sharing and displaying of image-based scholarly resources on the web

Leaders from eleven research libraries, national libraries, and nonprofit image repositories met at Oxford University to form the International Image Interoperability Framework Consortium.

Access to image-based resources is fundamental to research, scholarship and the transmission of cultural knowledge. Until now, much of the Internet’s image-based resources have been locked up in silos, with access restricted to custom-built applications. The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) supports uniform display of images of books, maps, scrolls, manuscripts, musical scores and archival material from participating institutions for display, manipulation, measurement and annotation by scholars and students working individually or in groups around the world.
