2. GALE BIOGRAPHY AND GENEALOGY MASTER INDEX

The Gale Biography and Genealogy Master Index is now available to members of the Stanford University community. You can find it under B on the Databases page.

http://www-sul.stanford.edu/catdb/alldata.html

It is "a comprehensive index to more than 12.7 million biographical sketches in more than 3,400 volumes and editions of current and retrospective reference books, covering both contemporary and historical figures throughout the world." You may remember it as the biography index we had through Dialog. This version is much, much easier to use. Enjoy!

3. REMINDER OF NO FOOD OR DRINK POLICY IN GREEN LIBRARY

Green Library has had a long standing policy of "no food or drink" in the public areas of the Library. However noncompliance with this policy is becoming evident in noticeable spills on library materials, computer equipment and furniture. Water damage to furniture is also apparent in many public areas as well.

Therefore, we are asking all library staff to be mindful of this policy. Please refrain from bringing in open food or beverage containers into the Library. Help us do our jobs by brown bagging your food or drinks when walking into the Library or when walking in any public spaces such as the reading rooms, Stack, lobby areas, etc.

It is important that patrons don't receive a mixed signal re: "No food or drink" policy as being applied selectively to some, not all. Your cooperation will make the job of staff monitoring the entrance and exit at Green, much more pleasant. No food or drink policy handouts are available at all portals into Green Library.
