Stanford Libraries & The Carpentries

Stanford Libraries SERG/Carpentries Workshop Series

Stanford University is a member organization of The Carpentries, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching foundational skills for research computing skills. This partnership is managed by Dr. Amy Hodge of the Stanford University Libraries, and is open to the entire campus community. Over the past few quarters the Stanford University Libraries have offered the popular two-day Software Carpentry workshops as an open enrollment to anyone on campus. Other campus organizations have also run and will continue to run similar versions of these workshops.

Lighting the Way: illuminating the future of discovery and delivery for archives

August 19, 2019
by Mark A. Matienzo

We are pleased to announce Lighting The Way: A National Forum on Archival Discovery and Delivery, a year-long project running from September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020, funded by the National Leadership Grants for Libraries program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Lighting the Way will convene a series of national meetings focused on enhancing discovery and delivery for archives and special collections. The project builds on current and past efforts at Stanford Libraries around archives and technology, including ArcLightePADD, and the AIMS project.

In October 2019, the project team will launch an open application and nomination process for a National Forum, scheduled for January 2020, dedicated to discussion and brainstorming about both current successes and challenges to effective archival discovery and delivery. Project funding includes participant support costs for archives, library, and technology workers interested in improving how user-facing systems that support archival discovery and delivery work together. Find out more about Lighting the Way, including information on the project team, its goals, and its expected outcomes on our project website.

Introducing Mirador 3: The next generation image comparison viewer
