Science can be hard on even the best of days. I remember. But when you can't get to your lab, it's much more challenging to be productive. I've assembled 10 tips on ways you can be productive and help the future you do better, more efficient science once you're able to get back to the lab.
Pick one tip from the list below that seems the most doable or the most critical for your work and get started on it this week. When you have that under control, move on to another!

Lots of interesting research is deposited into the Stanford Digital Repository every month, but when the research is about crocodiles, you know we have to know more!
While there are at least 26 species of crocodiles around today, many more forms of crocodiles have existed over the past 250 million years. Extinct crocodiles include those that were both much larger and much smaller than those living today.
Who could have guessed it? Player pianos rolls, those curious scrolls of punched, now brittle and yellowed paper you might come across at the thrift store, are at the center of new research underway at – where else? -- the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA).
It’s back to school time! As students return to campus for the new academic year, we look back at the stream of undergraduate theses and other capstone works published in the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) by graduating students last year. As usual, it was a healthy crop! The 2019 year is particularly noteworthy due to the high number of deposited works distinguished with prizes and medals.
In May, 2019, three colleagues launched an exhibit to mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death by celebrating the books and ideas that shaped his world. Leonardo's Library: The World of a Renaissance Reader will be on display through mid-October in the Green Library Bing Wing. The three colleagues, Prof. Paula Findlen, John Mustain (Emeritus Curator of Rare Books), and Elizabeth Fischbach (exhibits designer and manager for Stanford Libraries Special Collections), brought a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and experience to a real blockbuster demonstration of what can be accomplished when Stanford faculty, libraries, and a team of exceptional students come together to tell a story with our collections. We're happy to announce a new online exhibit, https://exhibits.stanford.edu/leonardo, to parallel and augment the physical experience and preserve a memory of this event for posterity.
