Did you know that rather than sharing a pdf file, you should share a link to where the pdf file originated in order to avoid copyright violation?
A helpful resource for faculty and TAs on using copyrighted materials in teaching and learning is "Know Your Copy Rights: Using Copyrighted Works in Academic Settings." The brochure can be freely downloaded and includes an easy-to-use chart highlighting various scenarios.
For information on Stanford's policy on copyright and fairuse, see our Q&A: Copyright and Fairuse.

I visited the display of Kircher's Magnetic Clock in Green Library, and enjoyed the write-up that accompanied it. Is this information available online?
Yes, it is. For that information, and more, check out the Athanasius Kircher Project.

Do Stanford Libraries have a collection of audio books?
The short answer is: not really. If you do a combined search and type under "fiction or literature" under subject and choose the format "recordings," you can see most of what Stanford has available. To search for a particular book, you can do a "combined search" in Socrates, and limit the format to "recordings." We have some poets and famous authors reading selections, but generally these are not in a format that circulates.
