Civil Engineers

Every year Brian Sedar, Faculty Coach, and Darryl Goodson, Industry Coach, borrow the set of the current RSMeans Construction Cost Estimation Books from the Terman Engineering Library for several long weekends during winter quarter.  We wondered about the intense interest in these reference volumes and found out that the books are taking a winter vacation in Nevada with a student team from the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

SDR Deposit of the Week: Reliability of Marine Structures

February 3, 2015
by Amy E. Hodge

Construction of marine facilities is an expensive endeavor, with platforms built in deep waters costing in the billions of dollars. That makes it important to do it right the first time. Research at the John A. Blume Center for Earthquake Engineering has helped to advance the offshore industry's knowledge of how to build these structures more reliably.

Student theses and research reports from visiting scholars in the Reliability of Marine Structures (RMS) Program are now preserved and available through the Stanford Digital Repository.

January 14, 2015

Overleaf logoOverleaf is a new collaborative writing and publishing system developed by the team behind the popular WriteLaTeX editor. Overleaf is designed to make the process of writing, editing and producing scientific papers much quicker for both authors and publishers. Overleaf/WriteLaTeX can also be linked to your Mendeley account for quick import of your Mendeley reference library.

The Stanford University Libraries are sponsoring a one year free trial of Overleaf/WriteLaTeX for all students, faculty and staff who would like to use a collaborative, online LaTeX editor for their projects.

Happy Anniversary SDR!

December 13 is a momentous date in the history of the Stanford Digital Repository. It's the date in 2012 when the very first research data item was deposited in the SDR through our online deposit application. Which makes Dec. 13, 2014, the second anniversary of this historic occasion!

Who was our first depositor, how did he find us, and what did he deposit?
