Where are you sheltering, and how are you?

I am in my petite one-bedroom apartment in the Castro/Upper Market neighborhood of San Francisco. Coping with “cabin fever” but I make a point of going out for short or longer walks every day. A challenge, as my only options are uphill or downhill, often pushing head first into the fog belt.

Rare book cataloging projects during shelter-in-place, part 2

May 19, 2020
by Ann K.D. Myers

Rare book cataloging activities are somewhat limited during shelter-in-place, since without the books in hand, we cannot create complete and accurate catalog records for them. So, we have been focusing our efforts on editing existing metadata for rare books. In my previous post, I described a project that has been completed; in this post, I'll describe a large, on-going metadata cleanup project.

Where are you sheltering, and how are you?

I am sheltering in my apartment in Campbell. I was part of the first group to work from home, but I only worked one day from home that first week because I was moving apartments.  Everything got moved by the Sunday before SIP. Phew!

Rare book cataloging activities are somewhat limited during shelter-in-place, since without the books in hand, we cannot create complete and accurate catalog records for them. We may do some preliminary cataloging of some new acquisitions based on dealer descriptions and other information, but for the time being, we have been focusing our efforts on editing existing metadata for rare books. In this post, I'll describe a project that has been completed; in part 2, I'll describe a large, on-going metadata cleanup project.

by Catherine Nicole Coleman

Last week 38 people from units across Stanford Libraries completed the six-week Elements of AI course. Of those who responded to the course survey, all said they would recommend it to colleagues. They also unanimously agreed that meeting weekly in groups to discuss each chapter was the most rewarding part of taking the course.
