The International Edible Book Festival commemorates the birthday on April 1st of Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), the French gastronome who wrote one of the seminal founding works on gastronomy, Physiologie du goût. It also celebrates the playful spirit of April Fool’s Day by encouraging us to play with our food and to consume literature on a whole new level.

The Lighting the Way project has elected to postpone its forthcoming working meeting indefinitely as Stanford Libraries and Stanford University continues to monitor the local and global developments of COVID-19. At this point, no further arrangements have been made, and no specific dates have been set to reschedule the working meeting, although we are looking potentially rescheduling the meeting for later this summer or early this fall.
Please note this event has been canceled.
Celebrating π Day all week long March 9-13, 2020.

Lighting the Way: A National Forum on Archival Discovery and Delivery kicks off with a series of livestreamed presentations on archival discovery and delivery on February 10, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8).
We encourage you to register for the livestream in advance so you can join in for what we hope will be an engaging set of presentations on four key themes:
- The Evolving Systems Ecosystem: What software and other systems do we use to make archival discovery and delivery possible, and how is that changing within institutional contexts?
- Networks and the Big Picture: What issues are impacting archives and libraries at the level of the sector, consortia, or beyond, related to discovery and delivery?
- Ethical, Legal, and Cultural Concerns: How have factors like privacy, cultural protocols, copyright, and others impacted our ability to address archival discovery and delivery, on a technical, operational, or strategic level?
- Impacts on Public Services and Outreach: How does archival discovery and delivery fit within the front-line work of library and archives workers focused on reference, outreach, public service, and community needs?
