The University's Information Security Office has announced that beginning on February 25th, use of the Stanford Virtual Private Network (VPN) will require two-step authentication. Stanford's VPN service is frequently used by hackers to gain unauthorized access to Stanford resources via compromised SUNet accounts. The addition of two-step authentication will prevent this abuse, just as it strongly protects access to our web-based services.

For more information and instructions on the changes to the VPN service, see ITS's Two-Step Authentication for VPN webpage. Once the additional security is in place, should you experience problems using VPN, please submit a HelpSU ticket.

An overview of Stanford's two-step authentication is available online.  Additionally, IT Services will provide in-person training on two-step authentication on Thursday Feb. 19th, from 10-11 in the SSRC room in Green Library.

Green Library break room

With the lack of a central staff break room in Green Library, the Provost and University provided funds to SUL to establish one. After a search of possible spaces, we found 245E on the 2nd floor of the Green Library east, near the Human Resources (HR) Suite, to be an ideal space. Once we establish occupancy, the central staff break room will be open to all SUL staff, DTZ janitorial staff, and the staff at Coupa Café.

It is with very mixed feelings that I announce Anna Fishaut is leaving the Art & Architecture Library after seven and a half years of service. Anna is targeting a new career in user experience design and will embark on a course in San Francisco to obtain the necessary training and credentials.
