A new cloud printing system has been implemented in the Stanford Libraries. The Stanford Print Service, managed by Vice Provost of Teaching & Learning (VPTL), is the result of an initiative to replace the old and outdated printing system that lacked features resident in more up-to-date printing systems. Printing and copying are essential services offered to library patrons and this new system greatly enhances these services.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stanford University Center for African Studies and the Four Decades of Angolan Independence Geballe Workshop, Stanford University Libraries is hosting a book launch of two new books: one on politcal history in central Angola from 1975-2002; and the other, an ethnography of members of the Namibian liberation movement, SWAPO (South West African People's Organization), many of whom were exiles in Angola, Zambia and Tanzania during the liberation struggles in Southern Africa.
