1. dd-ILL is Done; Long Live dd-ILL!

As of September 30, SUL/AIR's Digital Delivery of Interlibrary Loan (dd-ILL) pilot project, generously funded for two years by a grant from the California State Library, has completed its work. The pilot project saw major successes in the efficient production and delivery of digital copies of out-of-copyright monographs to remote users, and, because these copies will be available online in perpetuity, in the expansion of SUL's own digital library. dd-ILL digitized and delivered its 500th volume in the final days of the grant period, which is more than three times the modest (as it turned out) goals set at the beginning of the two grant years. In addition, the dd-ILL program has been noted and praised by the interlibrary loan community, by staff involved, and, most importantly, by users of our digitized materials.

Thanks to the generosity and support of the Libraries' directors, the dd-ILL project will be continuing its work, and as of October 1 is funded as part of the regular SUL/AIR budget. With the help of the fine dd-ILL staff, Sharon Hom and Peter Burchard, whose outstanding work has brought the project all of its successes so far, we look forward to another year of productivity, integration and expanded access to our unique collections.

2. SLSA Needs Your Help!

The Stanford Library Staff Association (SLSA), the group that brings you continuing education teleconferences, noon-time speakers on current topics, the annual book sale, Jasper Ridge excursions, and staff picnics, NEEDS YOUR HELP!! We currently have two open offices:

Vice-President/President-Elect
Member-at-Large in charge of booksale

We need energetic, enthusiastic people to help with organizing events and brainstorming new ones. We have several great people on board already who can help new members get adjusted. But we just need a couple more. The time commitment is minimal. Most organizing can be done through email and our once a month lunch meeting (it never goes over an hour, I promise!). We're especially interested in having more SUL representation as the majority of the board is from coordinate libraries.

Serving with SLSA is a good way to keep connected with other colleagues and find out what's happening at various libraries.

If you're interested in participating in SLSA, either by running for office, helping out with particular events, or suggesting new programs, please email me at rikke.greenwald@stanford.edu or call me at x5-5493. Hope to hear from you soon!

4. Campus Eateries Website

The August 22, 2001 Stanford Report article "Lunch Spots Taking a Break" leads users to an informative and well-researched webpage of "Campus Eateries." The webpage was developed by Rebecca Wedl, the Physics Library's evening LSII and webmaster, to help answer two frequently asked reference questions, "Where can I get food?" and "Where can I get change?" During her off-hours, Rebecca methodically researched and developed the Eateries webpage, gathering information and taking photographs while ostensibly on exploratory campus "field trips" with her 3-year old daughter Madeline. Rebecca has developed an excellent resource to Campus Eateries. Please have a look; maybe you will find a new eatery to try.

The online version of the article can be found at:

With the deadline for updating directory information for the 01/02 Stanford Directory set for October 15, Information Technology Systems and Services (ITSS) has made it easier for faculty and staff to update that information electronically.

To update your printed directory entry, go to Stanford.You located at http://www.stanford.edu/services/stanford.you/. You will be able to view only your own personal record in Stanford.You. When you are logged into PC-Leland or MacLeland you will automatically go to your own record; if not, you will be required to login with your SUNet ID and password. At the Stanford.You home page, you will see your name at the top of the page. There are three sections in Stanford.You: 1) Your Directory Listing, 2) Your University Identification Record, and 3) Your SUNet Services Settings. Click on "Your Directory Listing".

In Your Directory Listing, you will notice several small graphics images (globe, tree, red hand, open book). The open book designates fields that are selected to be printed in the Stanford (printed) Directory. At the bottom of the Directory Listing summary page, an option is provided to allow you to change and preview your printed directory listing...

If you have questions, please read the help information available on the Stanford.You web pages. If you have other questions, send them to directory-support@lists.stanford.edu.
