Every year, more and more Stanford researchers use the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) to share the work they have done in a way that goes beyond just publishing a paper -- they provide direct access to the actual data files so that others may also benefit from their efforts. Graduate student Michael Howland is one such forward-thinking Cardinal who recently deposited the data associated with his article "Wind farm power optimization through wake steering," out today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Friday, May 10th, marks the sesquicentennial of the Golden Spike, the ceremonial completion of the first transcontinental railroad. In honor of the occasion, curators Eitan Kensky, Kathleen Smith, and Ben Stone are organizing an Open House in Green Library from 11:00am to 3:00pm. In addition to material documenting the American transcontinental railroad and railroads in the United States, this event highlights stories of other significant trains and transportation networks around the world.

"I was wondering if you know anything about getting datasets discoverable on Google Dataset Search?"
We recently received this query from a Stanford researcher who had deposited content into the Stanford Digital Repository.
The short answer: request a DataCite DOI from Stanford Libraries, which you can do by emailing email@example.com.
For those of you unfamiliar with Google Dataset Search or who are interested in the details behind the response, read on!
