Special Collections Redwood City welcomes Gurudarshan Khalsa (for real)

April 1, 2020
by Glynn Edwards

The Department of Special Collections & University Archives is pleased to welcome Gurudarshan into a continuing position in our Redwood City branch, taking over from Malgorzata Schaefer who is retiring as of March 31st. I am doubly pleased with this outcome, as Gurudarshan has been working on a series of term and grant-funded positions at Stanford Libraries since 2014 – in both Special Collections and the Archives of Recorded Sound.
