1 Stanford University Embedding e in Course Sites Helen Josephine Head, Engineering Library Stanford University 3 July 2008

2 Background Converging interest in linking electronic books and articles into Coursework/Sakai –School of Engineering, Stanford University “Bookless” Library to open in 2010 Developing programs and services to deliver library information 24X7 –Associated Students of Stanford University Requested access to more online articles from the library to replace course readers from the bookstore –Coursework Team at Stanford Committed to creating a solution to help integrate licensed content and research guides into course sites

3 Engineering Library Customer Base School of Engineering –Faculty: 250 –Graduate Students: 3,000 –Undergraduates: 700 –Emeritus Faculty: 115 –Research Programs, Centers, Laboratories, Research Groups: % of total Stanford student body is enrolled in the School of Engineering

4 Departments Aeronautics and Astronautics BioEngineering Chemical Engineering Civil and Environmental Engineering Computer Science Electrical Engineering Management Science and Engineering Materials Science and Engineering Mechanical Engineering

5 School of Engineering Key Priorities Information Technology—research in software/hardware/communications Bioengineering—fusion of the life sciences and engineering Environment and Energy—focus on water, urbanization, health, global climate change Nanoscience and Nanotechnology—advancing the science and technology of very small structures

6 The new Engineering Library Strategically placed in the School of Engineering Commons building –Near the café, open exhibit area, and active learning space –Centerpiece of the new Engineering Quad Designed to promote formal and informal collaboration: a place to foster community, meet friends, professors, team members, investigate ideas Services and programs designed to enhance use of e-content in the collaborative spaces in the Commons and in the Library, via the web and Coursework
