It's summertime again, and we are closing the final chapter of this pandemic. As you head off to visit family and friends, you might need a good book to travel with - something to take your mind off the anticipation. You're in luck! We have been social distancing for a year, and we like to read even when there are other things to do. These staff picks from the Science and Engineering Resource Group offer the perfect distraction.

Stanford Libraries’ annual donor appreciation program on April 7 featured three projects that highlight the research services of our science and engineering libraries. Whether it is freeing data from analog records, facilitating the 3D printing of microscope prototypes, or bringing public health resources to nomadic tribes in southern Ethiopia—they all have one common denominator—Stanford Libraries!

Virtual workshop on International Chemical Identifiers (InChI)

March 2, 2021

March 22-24, 8am-Noon Pacific Time, Free, Registration required

A major theme emerging from the December 2020 NIH Workshop on Ultra Large Chemistry Databases is the essential role of the IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI) in our ability to link and query across large and diverse chemistry data resources.  Therefore, we now seek to bring the chemistry community together for an update on the development of the InChI and a discussion of its use in chemistry, biochemistry, and related research domains.  Speakers will report on developments in the InChI field, usage of InChI in their organization, as well as challenges and areas not yet covered by InChI.  The virtual workshop is scheduled for three half-days and will include short talks and panel discussions.
