Imagine a tool which contains ebooks, images, podcasts, videos, ephemera, magazines and journals. Where architecture, art, critical theory, design, expanded cinema, and visual culture come together in one place. This is Library Stack. Give it a try. I'd appreciate your feedback.

I am thrilled to announce that the Stanford Music Library has a new Head Librarian, Tamar Barzel. Tamar arrived at Stanford on July 1 after having spent the last three years as Assistant Research Scholar at New York University Libraries where she developed the music holdings in the Downtown Collection. Prior to arriving at NYU, Tamar was on the music faculty at Wellesley College, where she directed the ethnomusicology program and taught courses in jazz, popular music and field methods.
