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.
