Question: Does Stanford have old magazines that I could photocopy or scan? How can I browse through them? Are any available online?
Come and celebrate the Grand Opening of Coupa Café's coffee kiosk! On Tuesday, April 6, from 4-6 p.m., there will be a live band, free coffees and other surprises.
Located between Green and Meyer Libraries, the Coupa Café offers a variety of freshly prepared food items and organic coffee drinks, teas and other beverages. You can get anything from a snack to a full meal and it's open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends (with plans to extend hours in coming months).
"This is a great development," said University Librarian Mike Keller. "Coupa has done a marvelous job of efficient design to expand the kiosk service. This will be a real boon both to library denizens and to students living in nearby dorms."

Question: I'm looking for an honors thesis that I know was written at Stanford a few years back. I tried looking in Socrates, but couldn't find it. Is there anywhere else I should look?
In the summer of 2008, SULAIR purchased a video archive of interviews with major figures in the feminist art movement. The material was compiled over two decades by filmmaker and artist Lynn Hershman Leeson for use in her feature-length documentary on the rise of the feminist art movement in the United States, !Women Art Revolution.
Acquired via a collaborative purchase organized by Henry Lowood, Roberto Trujillo, and Peter Blank, and with support from the Director’s Office, it was the expressed wish of Hershman and SULAIR that these interviews be made freely available to encourage and support further research into feminist studies, art history, and American studies. To that end, SULAIR has just launched the !Women Art Revolution collection web site.
Starting Monday, March 22, 2010, the computer science collections will be moving out of the Mathematical & Computer Sciences Library.

SULAIR has the following new positions this week:
Image Quality Assurance Specialist (#37312)
Digitization Workflow Engineer (#37588)
Question: I have heard that Palo Alto City Libraries have movies, audio books, children's books and popular magazines that Stanford Libraries don't carry. Can I get a library card and borrow from the public library?
