What's on at the Libraries' image
A couple of weeks ago, the Online Experience Group (OEG) announced a new feature for publicizing workshops, exhibits, and other events on the Library website. This new feature uses the Stanford Events system to automatically push your event (exhibit, workshop, etc.) to the Library's website.
 
If you haven't done so already, take a look at the Libraries' revamped Events and workshops pages, which now has the heading "What's on at the Libraries:". The new format allows users to easily sort by workshops, exhibits, general events, and all categories happening today.
