  • Members of the Research Library Cooperative Program (RLCP) may now use Stanford Request, a new service which makes it possible to request materials held in the Stanford University Libraries through Pathfinder. All UCB faculty, graduate students and academic staff are eligible for this service. You must be logged onto Pathfinder (using the UCB Logon capability). The "Stanford Libraries Catalog" will be one database choice available, and when a member finds the record for an item s/he wants in that database, s/he may click the "Request" button, which will launch the Stanford Request service. The RLCP member must use whatever ID number from whatever card s/he uses for other library services. For graduate students, this will most likely be their student ID. For faculty and Academic Staff, it will either be their Staff ID or a card issued by the Library.

The Library gets in on the action too, so check out the list of Library Welcome Week events. But no matter what you call it, the week of August 20-24, 2001 will be wild, wooly and full of fun.
  • Has it really been two months since I last clued you in on the hot happenings of your beloved Library Web? Just the usual fabulousness has been brewing 'round here. Nothing dramatic like a meltdown, or discovery of a mascarra that doesn't cause racoon eyes. But enough about really important stuff, let's get to the fun part of my job ...
