Library’s New Website
By Lesley Wolf
The look of the new SLAC Library website is roomy.
The feel is airy and light. Maneuverability is nimble as you roll your
mouse across the page. And while it does not smell like a new car, it
handles like one. The site has been reworked, reshaped, remodeled and
reformed to better serve you, the SLAC information customer. The URL has
http://www.slac.stanford.edu/library (and yes, we do still have a
physical library on the second floor of the Central Lab, Bldg. 40).
The site now offers side-by-side book and journal
search boxes, new books and SLAC publication lists, as well as a
one-size-fits-all request form for ordering interlibrary (outside of
SLAC) books, copies of articles, purchases, journal routing to your
mailbox and book purchase suggestions. Check out the ASME Standards
database, e-mail the reference librarian or browse the online computer
