A pair of interviews

I was interviewed by Naomi House at INALJ.COM as part of the In Six (interviews) series. My interview, which includes references to sports, Willie Nelson and bel hooks, is up today.

My colleague Tom Cramer (Associate Director, Digital Library Systems and Services) and I were interviewed by the Stanford Daily for a Feature article about SearchWorks, our next generation discovery environment. It is a nice article, and the student journalist who wrote it really did his homework before talking to us.  Unfortunately, a transition paragraph got left out of the online article, so my initial quote seems a bit out of place. Apparently, that section should read:

SearchWorks debuted in the fall of 2010. It took three years and a team of about 16 people to produce a replacement for the previous catalog, Socrates. While developing SearchWorks, the team made a special effort to consider the unique needs of the Stanford community. For example, Chris Bourg, assistant University librarian for public services, drew from her experience working with undergraduates while a graduate student at Stanford.

“I represent the scholar’s point of view, the student’s point of view,” Bourg M.A. ’98 Ph.D. ’03 said.
