Contribute to the Stanford Law School e-Book Cookbook!

 

Calling all cooks!  As part of our commitment to wellness, the library has a new display of cookbooks in the second floor’s 24-7 Lounge.  All cookbooks are available for checkout, and we encourage you to suggest others for inclusion in our collection.

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR RECIPES!  We have also started an SLS e-book cookbook, entitled “In the Kitchen with Stanford Law School.”  If you are an SLS student, staff, or faculty member, please contribute your favorite recipes, cooking anecdotes, and food-related photos! Submissions are open through December 1st.  When the e-book is finished (December/January), you’ll be able to download it for free via iTunes! Submitting your recipes and photos is easy.   Just follow this link:  http://bit.ly/sls4cbk

So, take a restorative study or work break in the kitchen!

New JSTOR Product: “Books at JSTOR”

JSTOR (“Journal Storage”) has just launched a new program:

Books at JSTOR

Features include:

  •  A growing list of titles in core scholarly disciplines. Books from participating presses are already highly-cited within the corpus of journals on JSTOR. More than 15,000 front- and backlist titles are currently offered through the program, and new titles are added every month.
  • Flexible purchase options. All books are available in a single-user model, and thousands in a multi-user model. Books are available for purchase as individual titles, disciplinary packages, and customizable collections. Volume discounts are offered. A demand-driven acquisition option is also available.
  • Preservation assured. Books are preserved in Portico (portico.org), ITHAKA’s digital preservation service.
  • Seamless integration. JSTOR currently has millions of book reviews and hundreds of thousands of book citations on the platform. Books, journal articles, and reviews are cross-searchable and linked in ways that make online research faster, easier, and more effective.
