All other rooms (indicated below) are scheduled by Academic Computing via the Web at:

  • Meyer 182 - presentation classroom or portable iBooks for student stations

  • Language Lab Classroom, Meyer 280C - hands-on classroom, Mac student stations;

As always, priority for the use of these rooms goes to academic classes.

2. Branner Earth Sciences Library Receives Grant

Branner Earth Sciences Library & Map Collections, of the Stanford University Libraries, is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant through the California State Library to scan and catalog the maps and field notebooks of the Stanford Geological Survey from 1897 to the present. This two year project will be funded jointly by funds from the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), the School of Earth Sciences at Stanford, and the Stanford University Libraries.

The collection includes approximately 5,000 manuscript items that primarily cover portions of the state of California. As the maps and field notebooks are held exclusively at Branner Library, they are a unique resource for the people of the state of California and across the county. The scanned maps and field notebooks, as well as the accompanying metadata, will ultimately be available to all for free over the Web. Although it is expected that the project will take two years to complete, the Web site will be fully functional after the first year with a goal of 500 images and records available to view.
