I would like to share the behind-the-scenes story of a recent project at Stanford Libraries: we received a sizable coin collection from the Cantor Arts Center and have been working over the past year and a half to make it accessible for use. In honor of its origins, this collection is called the Cantor Arts Center collection of ancient coins and it contains approximately 8,700 coins from the ancient world. Currently there are circa 300 coins fully cataloged that feature digital images online and three preassembled study sets for use in the Barchas Room in Special Collections at Green Library.

The International Edible Book Festival commemorates the birthday on April 1st of Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), the French gastronome who wrote one of the seminal founding works on gastronomy, Physiologie du goût. It also celebrates the playful spirit of April Fool’s Day by encouraging us to play with our food and to consume literature on a whole new level.
