Stanford Libraries’ annual donor appreciation program on April 7 featured three projects that highlight the research services of our science and engineering libraries. Whether it is freeing data from analog records, facilitating the 3D printing of microscope prototypes, or bringing public health resources to nomadic tribes in southern Ethiopia—they all have one common denominator—Stanford Libraries!

In November 2020, the Faculty Senate approved a Stanford Open Access Policy that requires all members to obtain an ORCID and the libraries of Stanford University are here to help.  We are working together to assist you to claim your ORCID iD, add works to your record, share your record with the world, and link your research directly back to Stanford.

Launching the Lighting the Way working meeting

April 20, 2021
by Mark A. Matienzo

The Lighting the Way project team is happy to announce the launch of the Working Meeting, a series of online meetings and facilitated activities held in April and May 2021. The Working Meeting focuses on convening small groups to develop a topic related to improving archival discovery and delivery into a written contribution of 5-10 pages to be published by the project this summer. Building on the work of the Lighting the Way Forum, the four sessions of the Working Meeting leverages the Liberating Structures framework and other proven techniques from human-centered design to provide a welcome and supportive environment for collaboration.

Our first session was held on Monday, April 19, 2021, and we are pleased to introduce you to the groups, participants, and facilitators that will be collaborating over the next six weeks and beyond. We will share more as our work progresses throughout and after the Working Meeting.
