Engineering and science news from the blog
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?
It's that time of year again! Summertime. The perfect time to relax and fall into the pages of a good book. These Stanford Libraries Science and Engineering Resource Group* staff picks offer the perfect selection. There is something for everyone, from solving a murder mystery to exploring the cosmos.
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.
Earth Day 2022 is Friday, April 22nd!
The Branner Earth Sciences Library has partnered with Stanford Earth, Stanford Earth Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and the Stanford Environmental Justice Group to celebrate Earth Day!
