Summer Quarter Hours

Happy 20th Birthday to the Modern Internet

It's hard to imagine life without the Internet and yet, it is only 20 years old? Supercomputing Online says in its article today that "NSFNET is generally accepted as the progenitor of the modern Internet as we know it today." For a more detailed explanation about the origins of the Internet, see Internet Society.

For books about the history of the Internet in our library collection, search Subject = Internet History.

Buckminster Fuller at the Whitney

The Stanford University Libraries are excited to be sponsoring Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe, currently on exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Fuller's archive was deposited with SULAIR in 1999, and many of the materials in the exhibit were supplied by the library. If you can't make it to New York, you may want to look at the online collection of sound and video recordings of Bucky that SULAIR has digitized. You can also check our finding aid for a full listing of the Buckminster Fuller papers on deposit with SULAIR.
