New Services and Features of the Stanford Digital Repository

Come hear about all the latest developments for promoting and sharing research, articles, and more in the Stanford Digital Repository.

We'll provide a brief overview for those who aren't familiar with the basics, and then update you on new features, including audio/video streaming, image analysis functionality, and our Exhibits service that can help you build an entire web site around your SDR content.

We'll also talk about the future, including a new interface for depositing content in the SDR.  This session is appropriate for anyone (faculty, grad students, and staff) who are responsible for making academic outputs of the university available online.

Hannah Frost, Stanford Digital Repository Service Manager, Stanford Libraries
