We now have access to all the resources of Ed/ITLib, Education and Information Technology Digital Library.
The vision for EdITLib, the Digital Library for Education & Information Technology, is to facilitate learning, discovery and innovation by connecting scholarly research on Educational Technology/E-Learning with learning opportunities.
As requested, we have added the Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education. We have electronic only but access to all available issues starting in 1993 and continuing to the present for the Stanford community.
We now have access to over 280 eBook on educational technologies available to us through the IGI Global portal at www.igi-global.com/gateway. Stanford patrons can download chapters or an entire book for reading on a computer or mobile device. About half the titles we also have in paper.
The indexes Education Full Text and Education Index Retrospective are now part of the Ebscohost suite of databases. Try out the new format and let us know if you have any questions.
We’ve just received a number of units for The Choices Program: History and Current Issues for the Classroom. You’ll find them shelved on the new books shelf for the next couple of weeks, but you can check them out. Just let the staff member know that they are from the new book shelf. Enjoy!
I’ve updated the Stanford version of the LibX toolbar for Firefox and IE to version 1.5.15. It sets SearchWorks as the default catalog and adds several additional catalogs, such as the Hathi Trust.

If you have it installed, you already should have seen a notice suggesting that you upgrade.
I’ve also updated the documentation at http://libx.stanford.edu.
LibX is an incredibly powerful tool, and you will definitely save you a lot of time by adding it to your research workflow.
If you’re already using it, there is a mailing list for LibX users at Stanford; join for help, tips, and tricks!
The Stanford University Libraries now subscribes to Scopus, “the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.” It covers nearly 18,000 periodical titles and conference papers. Though it is strongest in the sciences, it does include the social sciences.

Stanford University Libraries has online access to a wide variety of technical books from publishers such as O’Reilly, Apress, Wrox, and Packt. As of August 2008, coverage by Safari Tech Books has expanded to include the entire line of O’Reilly titles.
Books 24×7 provides online access to over 20,000 computer and technical titles from Apress, Wrox, Packt, and other publishers. As of September, 2008, Stanford’s site license increased from 3 simultaneous Books 24×7 users to an unlimited number.
Safari Online and Books 24×7 are linked from the SULAIR E-books and E-texts page.
The books and other items in the basement have been moved to storage for the summer. If you come across a message in a Cubberley record that says “Inquire at Loan Desk”, let us help you find another copy.
On Monday, the items in the library will be moved to the basement for the summer. We will be paging those for you, so let us know.
Kathy Kerns has discovered some additional photos of the School of Education building during construction in the late 1930s. We have added them to our website at:
We also have high-resolution TIFFs that we can make available if you would like them. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to download the high-resolution photos.
