Stanford Libraries has been awarded a $4 million grant to implement a new system that will greatly improve how users discover library holdings

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded the grant to Stanford in partnership with the libraries of Cornell, Harvard and the University of Iowa.  Stanford will lead the effort to integrate library data into the web, in a semantic way, so it can be discovered intelligently in web searches as well as in a library’s catalog.  For more details go to:
