Engineering and science news from the blog
Branner Earth Sciences Library is delighted to announce the addition of Alma Parada to our staff as the Earth and Environmental Sciences Librarian. Alma comes to us from the Dekas Lab run by Anne Dekas, an Assistant Professor in Earth Systems Science. In her role as a Postdoctoral Scholar, she has managed and assisted in research project, provided assistance and training to students and staff, and provided instruction to students on literature searches and data retrieval.
It's summertime again, and we are closing the final chapter of this pandemic. As you head off to visit family and friends, you might need a good book to travel with - something to take your mind off the anticipation. You're in luck! We have been social distancing for a year, and we like to read even when there are other things to do. These staff picks from the Science and Engineering Resource Group offer the perfect distraction.
ACS in Focus ebooks are:
- Four to eight hour primers for beginning and seasoned scientists that need a quick start to a topic outside of their expertise.
- Topics include emerging and cross-disciplinary subjects not traditionally taught in an undergraduate chemistry curriculum.
- In an instructional setting, these works bridge the gap between textbooks and literature.
- Digital-only to take advantage of hyperlinks, pop-up glossary, videos, and animations.
- eReader is part of ACS Publications content suite and enables the reader to learn when it suits them, on or offline.
Access ACS in Focus (limited to current students, postdocs, faculty, and staff at Stanford).

Stanford Libraries’ annual donor appreciation program on April 7 featured three projects that highlight the research services of our science and engineering libraries. Whether it is freeing data from analog records, facilitating the 3D printing of microscope prototypes, or bringing public health resources to nomadic tribes in southern Ethiopia—they all have one common denominator—Stanford Libraries!
