Two new finding aids are now avaialble via the Online Archive of California and the collections are open for research. The Frances Blaisdell collection captures the trailblazing flute player Frances Blaisdell and the Jim Goggin collection captures select activities of the cofounder of the San Francisco Traditional Jazz Foundation.
The Digital Library Systems and Services Access and Discovery Team completed a multi-week development work cycle for Spotlight at Stanford on 7 April 2021. The work cycle focused on continuing the enhancement and support of the Spotlight at Stanford platform to ensure the greatest possible flexibility of use, and to meet the growing needs of the Stanford community and our partners.
We're pleased to highlight the following new features, which were identified as number one priorities by Stanford Libraries stakeholders:
Dimensions is a large citation and abstract database that covers all subject areas and provides free access to citations from research publications. Stanford has a subscription to Dimensions Plus, a fee-based service, that covers millions of research publications connected by more than 1.4 billion citations, supporting grants, datasets, clinical trials, patents, and policy documents.
“Captions make online content more accessible. If you’re in a noisy environment, trying to keep the volume down, or are part of the 466 million people in the world who are deaf or hard of hearing, having captions lets you follow along to whatever content you are watching. Unfortunately, captions aren’t always available for every piece of content.
The Music Library welcomes all eligible Stanford community members to make an appointment to visit on Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 am – 4 pm.
To make an appointment:
- Log in to My Account on the Stanford Libraries website and choose Music or ARS from the pulldown;
- Pick your desired date and time block for entry;
- Finally, check the required boxes on the "provide information" page. Your email address should auto-populate here. An email will confirm your appointment.
The ePADD development team is excited to announce the release of version 8!
ePADD is free and open source software developed by Stanford Libraries' Special Collections & University Archives that uses natural language processing and machine learning to support archival appraisal, processing, discovery, and delivery for email of historical or cultural value.
