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?

Three Stanford students, sponsored by the Stanford Historical Society (SHS), spent the summer as interns with the Oral History Program under the supervision of program staff Natalie Marine-Street and Makeda Barr-Brown. Founded in 1978, the Oral History Program explores the institutional history of the university through interviews with faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and other members of the community. The program relies on student and volunteer interviewers and editors who have helped complete nearly 1,000 oral history interviews since its inception.
