Disclaimer: this database was created by Foot Locker. But Foot Locker probably does know a fair bit about sneakers, and this is a sneaker database. It is searchable by brand, type, material, color, keyword, and/or year; images and descriptive info. come from sneaker owners. Pretty entertaining.
Art & Architecture Library
If you'd like to get notified of new additions to the Art Library's (or any library at Stanford, for that matter) collections on a topic of interest to you, one easy way is to set up an RSS feed for a specific SearchWorks search. You'll need: (1) some search terms; (2) a feed reader (I used Google Reader).
For example, to be notified when new artists' books are added to our collection (provided they're given the subject term "Artists' books"), follow these steps:
Search for "artists' books" in the Subject field, and then limit your location to the Art Library.
On the occasion of the visit of the eco-artists Helen and Newton Harrison to campus last week, the Art & Architecture Library has curated an exhibition of highlights from the artists' archive, which the Stanford Libraries purchased in 2010.
