Those of you who are on campus this summer have no doubt noticed that the coffee shop outside of Green Library has closed for the summer. After 11 years of serving up coffee and goodies to Stanford students, faculty & staff, Moonbean's Cafe closed earlier this month.
Coupa Cafe was selected to operate in the busy coffee kiosk space between Meyer and Green, and is scheduled to open there in September.
For more details, see Coupa to replace Moonbean's.
We bid farewell to Moonbean's, with gratitude for their 11 years of coffee, goodies, smiling service, and great music. We welcome Coupa Cafe, and hope that they open soon -- we need caffeine!

In his new book, A Companion to Bede, Stanford scholar George Hardin Brown generously acknowledges the support of the Stanford University Libraries:
“I am particularly grateful for the resources, textual and electronic, of the Stanford University Libraries, and for my study in Green Library, a daily haven for research and writing. Michael Keller, University Librarian, and Assunta Pisani, Associate University Librarian for Collections and Services, have been generous in their support. The reference librarians, especially Eric Heath, Rose Harrington, Miriam Palm, and Molly Molloy, have been unfailingly helpful; Mary-Louise Munill has efficiently provided interlibrary borrowing; R.T. Carr III has cheerfully searched for missing books in the stacks (and found them!); my former student in paleography and now assistant library director, David Jordan, has provided manuscript and bibliographic information; and John Mustain, rare book librarian, has enthusiastically assisted with numerous services and friendly counsel (p. vii-viii).”
Providing the resources and services scholars need for research and teaching is what we do best, and this is just one example of the fruits of our labor.
Great job everyone!
