The Department of Special Collections is thrilled to announce the hire of two new staff members into continuing appointment positions as processing archivists. The positions are funded by the Harold Hohbach Program Endowment, which was created from a gift by the Harold C. and Marilyn A. Hohbach Foundation. These positions will focus on making available collections highlighting the history of science, technology, and those that document changes and developments in Silicon Valley and further afield.

On June 22, 2022, in the midst of a power outage on the historic campus, a core group of staff working on the Virtual Tribunals program met on the Redwood City Campus for a half-day long discussion regarding next steps on the project and in particular, the longer term vision and goals for the next 2-3 years.
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.
