Fall 2022 Gear-Up for Science Data

September 25, 2022
by Alma Elizabeth Parada

Working with science data can be tough! Real datasets are often complex, with each type of data bringing along it its own needs for quality control, management, and analysis. Feeling overwhelmed? You're not alone!

The Stanford Libraries and the Lane Medical Library are very excited to announce that the Fall 2022 Gear-Up will focus on dealing with real data in the sciences. This event will consist of a series of virtual and hybrid workshops over 3 days, Monday - Wednesday October 10-12, culminating in an in-person research symposium and social hour on Thursday, October 13, 2022.

This week, we opened "Escape the Library" at the Terman Engineering Library. We had such a fun time creating this escape room, and it has been even more fun watching students enjoy the game during orientation week.

It's been three days now, and we have had several escapees - including my husband (pictured below) who finally got to play after hearing me talk about the game ALL summer. Bookings are open until November 18th to anyone with an active Stanford ID. Will you escape?

Brynn Kramer and Meagan Trott: Conrad Collection on Dutch Waterways


Amongst our map team here at Stanford Libraries, we have several part-time members who we just wish so badly were full-time. Their dedication and contributions are invaluable, undoubtedly being the individuals behind the curtain keeping this show on the road.

Brynn Kramer and Meagan Trott have long been two of these employees, and it is with great excitement that the entire map team welcomes and presents them as our project team for processing and cataloging the cartographic portion of the Conrad Collection on Dutch Waterways.

It's summertime again, and we are closing a chapter of this pandemic. As you head off to visit family and friends, possibly for the first time in over a year, you might need a good book to travel with- something to take your mind off of the anticipation. You're in luck! We have been social distancing for a year, and we like to read even when there are other things to do. These staff picks from the Science and Engineering Resource Group offer the perfect distraction.
