The horse in motion

Two Stanford University Library branches have recently launched stunning new websites: Special Collections & University Archives and the Art & Architecture Library.

Both of these sites take full advantage of the many features available on the new SUL website. Most visible on each site is a content-rich slide show that highlights the unique collections and activities of these two libraries. The Art & Architecture site currently features an online exhibit of works in its current physical exhibition, "Models from the Architectural Design Program" (which you should rush over to see: it closes on June 1). The online exhibit features beautiful original photography by our Assistant Art Librarian Anna Fishaut.

Chris Bourg

Chris Bourg, Stanford's Assistant University Librarian for Public Services, has recently given an important keynote address titled "Beyond Measure: Valuing Libraries" at The Acquisitions Institute 2013. (Chris will also soon be traveling to Penn State University to deliver a lecture on the same topic.)

Chris understands the term "valuing" in multiple ways, not only as the enduring value of libraries to our culture — perhaps questioned by a few short-sighted people, but generally acknowledged. More important for Chris are two other distinct meanings of "valuing": the expression of the core values of librarianship as a profession, and the important task of evaluating — that is, assessing — the impact and cultural value of particular libraries.
