Concierge 6: Digital Library Initiatives--Final Session Today!

The final session for Concierge 6: Digital Library Initiatives is today, beginning at 3:00pm.

Ever wonder what's up with Stanford and the Google books digitization project? Ever wonder what to say when a student asks you how to get a high-resolution digital image of SUL materials for her dissertation? Ever wonder what to do with important multimedia materials or born digital materials that are starting to deteriorate? Come to the August Concierge session on SUL's Digitization Programs and you'll know the answers.

Charles Kerns's First Novel Published

Santo Gordo book cover
Our longtime SUL colleague Charles Kerns (an Academic Computing veteran, and current website redesign consultant) has recently published his first (but we hope not his last!) novel, Santo Gordo: A Killing in Oaxaca.

Charles's novel is, on its face, a sort of political thriller and murder mystery -- but not only! It's also an appreciative (and deliciously foodie) travelogue through the streets of Oaxaca, and a savvy portrait of ex-pat life there. Even more remarkably, Charles's sensitive portrayal of Oaxacans from an array of political and social classes reveals some of the intense beauty and searing tragedy of contemporary Mexico, and of its deeply interconnected neighbor to the north (that would, of course, be us).
