1. MEYER MATERIALS MOVE TO SAL: PHASE II

Materials selected for relocation to the Stanford Auxiliary Library (SAL) from Meyer's holdings in L.C. class numbers H and J are now en route to SAL. We expect to complete this phase of the Meyer move in about one week. As with Phase I, the books' catalog records will reflect their new locations very soon thereafter.

2. U.C. OPENS NEW DIGITAL LIBRARY

The California Digital Library, an online library developed by the University of California, opened on Wednesday. Designed to supplement the collections in the U.C.'s nine campus libraries, the CDL provides Web-based access to a wide range of electronic resources for academic research and teaching.

Among the CDL's offerings are electronic journals and databases, finding aids for archival materials available throughout the U.C. system, and even digitized photographs and documents. It also provides access to the U.C.-wide library catalog, Melvyl, and two new services: online interlibrary loan requests (available directly through Melvyl) and an "Update" service that regularly performs specified searches and notifies patrons of new search results.

More information about the CDL can be obtained by accessing it directly at

3. REPORTING SPAM* EMAIL

"Spam" emails are those annoying messages you get about "Make Money Fast", "Send me $5", or "Hot XXX Babes". Stanford has an official mechanism for reporting these messages, so that you don't have to investigate them yourself.

When you receive a spam message, just forward it to junkmail@stanford.edu. Be aware, however, that you need to send the entire message, including the FULL HEADERS. The normal "From" address you see in a spam message isn't always correct because it can be forged easily. The full headers contain information that can help the computer security team track down the real source.

You normally don't see these full headers, but you can get them by following these instructions:

Eudora: Click on the Blah Blah Blah button, before forwarding the message; the headers will be included.

Simeon: Pull down the View menu, and select Full Headers. Highlight everything that appears in the header section and copy it. Then, forward the message and paste the copied header section above the headers that already appear in the forwarded message.

*Derivation of the term "Spam" is available upon request.
