I am thrilled to announce that the Stanford Music Library has a new Head Librarian, Tamar Barzel. Tamar arrived at Stanford on July 1 after having spent the last three years as Assistant Research Scholar at New York University Libraries where she developed the music holdings in the Downtown Collection. Prior to arriving at NYU, Tamar was on the music faculty at Wellesley College, where she directed the ethnomusicology program and taught courses in jazz, popular music and field methods.

After almost five years as Head of the Bowes Art & Architecture Library, our wonderful colleague Vanessa Kam is leaving Stanford for the role of Electronic Resources Librarian at Emily Carr University of Art and Design (ECUAD) in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she shares a home with her husband Tonel, an artist, curator and writer from Cuba. At ECUAD, Vanessa will liaise with the faculty of design and dynamic media.  Founded in 1925, ECUAD is one of British Columbia’s oldest post-secondary institutions and one of only four art institutions of its kind in Canada.

Stanford Libraries has so many maps in its collection, but not enough Yelp reviews to help you figure out which ones you should look at. We are here to help.
