We are sorry to say goodbye this week to Freya Channing, our Rare Books Copy Cataloger. She will be starting a new position at Oakland Public Library in September.
Have you ever wondered about the scope, extent, and style of Digital Humanities activities going on in Europe, and how our DH work in the U.S., and particularly at Stanford, compares? Are you interested in learning more about DARIAH, the major pan-European infrastructure for activities in Digital Arts and Humanities? Do you have a DH project or idea of your own, and want to hear about what other projects and working groups are doing, both in California and beyond?
Join us September 13th through 15th, 2018, in Stanford’s Green Library, for a 3-day workshop on “Sustainable Infrastructures for Digital Arts & Humanities” to learn more.
Tiny books, x-rays, and ancient texts: a year as an intern at Stanford Libraries' Conservation Services
Michelle C. Smith will give a presentation on her final year of graduate school in the Buffalo State College Art Conservation Program. This will include her 2017 summer internship at the Bibliothèque nationale de France and her year spent working at Stanford Libraries' Conservation Services under Kristen St. John and David Brock.
This is a guest post from project archivist Alyssa Tou.
On July 17-18, the Stanford Media Preservation Lab team welcomed a small group of media preservation professionals from around the region and across the country to our home on the Stanford Redwood City campus for two days of “unconferencing". While Stanford has been a leader in media preservation among academic libraries for over a decade, this was our first time hosting a community-oriented event with the goal of advancing our collective work: to ensure ongoing, long-term access to audiovisual recordings of all kinds in the interest of scholarly research, artistic continuity, and the public good.
The Acquisitions Department is pleased to welcome Shani Braier Marcovitz as the new Ordering Specialist.
