A new way to use arXiv.org

arXiv.org is a great resource for pre-prints in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Quantitative Biology, Quantitative Finance, Statistics, Electrical Engineering and Systems Science, and Economics.  While the PDF format of the pre-prints hosted there is great for offline reading or printing, it's not the best choice for online viewing, and now there is a great alternative in arXiv Vanity (https://www.arxiv-vanity.com/).

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.

SDR Deposit of the Week: Optimizing wind farms

July 1, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

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.

Open House on Trains and Railroads on May 10th, 2019


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.

Your data + Google Dataset Search

January 16, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

"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: deposit your data into the SDR and select the option to get a DOI with your deposit.

For those of you unfamiliar with Google Dataset Search or who are interested in the details behind the response, read on!
