I’m so pleased to share the great news that Erin Thajudeen has joined the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Group as a curatorial assistant. She’ll be working with several of the curators to enhance accessibility to the materials in our areas. Erin will provide much-needed support to evaluate and process collections, and will help us offer valuable outreach services like open houses, instruction, and exhibits. You may also see Erin in the Special Collections reading room helping to staff the desk.

Just published: Final report of the Lighting the Way project

The Lighting the Way project team is pleased to announce the publication of Facilitating and Illuminating Emergent Futures for Archival Discovery and Delivery: The Final Report of the Lighting the Way Project.  Lighting the Way focused on exploring how networks of people and technology impact archival discovery and delivery (how people find, access, and use material from archives and special collections) and focused on engaging directly with practitioners – archives, library, and technology workers – involved in this work, across roles, job functions, areas of expertise, and levels of positional power. Through a series of in-person and virtual events, the project applied participatory, generative facilitation methods to allow participants to develop future-oriented visions of how to transform archival delivery while also bringing their own experience to bear. The final report is available through the Stanford Digital Repository at its DOI (doi:10.25740/jm302fq5311) and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
