1. Scholars' Workshops

A reminder that two more sessions remain in the Winter series of Scholars' Workshops. On March 6, Ann Latta will present information on California documents entitled: California: Land, Water and Growth. The following Wednesday, March 13, Malgorzata Schaefer's session will focus on how to find full-text articles online through such resources as Project Muse, JSTOR, First Search databases, Policy file, and others. Please spread the word to faculty, students and staff who might be interested.

2. Copyright Links

As a member of the Copyright Subcommittee for the American Chemical Society, I have compiled a list of web resources on copyright. Please see:


While some resources are aimed at the chemistry community, most resources will be of interest to anyone dealing with copyright issues.

3. Kathy Long Hired as Jackson Library Director

Kathy Long has been selected to fill the Jackson Library Director position at the Graduate School of Business. Kathy will begin work at the GSB on March 1st. She replaces Shirley Hallblade, who relocated to Southern California in January to accept a Library Director appointment at Occidental College.

Kathy recently worked as the Research Director for Viant Corporation in San Francisco, where she had responsibility for corporate level services as she created the strategy for a new library and information program within a rapidly growing organization. Prior to that appointment, she was the Manager of the Information Team from 1986 to 2000 for Strategic Decisions Group/Navigant Consulting in Menlo Park. While at SDG, Kathy managed both the library staff and a group of business analysts.

Prior to working at SDG, Kathy was the Manager of Information Services for the Corporate Library at Hewlett Packard Company in Palo Alto from 1984 to 1986. She was the Library Manager at the Honeywell Electro-Optics Division in Lexington, MA, from 1980-1984, and an Information Specialist in the Research Library at Arthur D. Little, Inc. in Cambridge, MA, from 1974 to 1980. Kathy also has a BA degree in History from the University of Massachusetts and a MS degree in Library and Information Science from Simmons College in Boston, MA.

We've very pleased to have Kathy as a new member of the Stanford community. Her office will be located in Jackson Library and her phone number will be 5-2002.
