    Manuscript/Archive
    Date:
    20th century
    Summary:
    This twentieth-century Ethiopian prayerbook is dedicated to the Holy Trinity and its miracles, and contains readings for each day of the week. The text might have been composed by Täklä Maryam, whose name appears on fol. 13r. The author felt that the Trinity was not worshipped and celebrated as it should be, not even as much as the martyrs, the angels, and the desert fathers. The manuscript itself was owned by Gäbrä Mika’el (fols. 21v, 52v, and passim). It still retains its double leather satchel, complete with the remains of a carrying strap, which suggests that it may have been taken on pilgrimages. Small bits of colored thread have been attached to the corners of the first folios of the readings, an unusual solution to helping the reader navigate the text. Written in Gǝ'ǝz, Ethiopia's liturgical language, the manuscript appears to have been originally undecorated, with knot work added to the upper margins of the first two readings at a later date.

    Date:
    20th century
    Summary:
    This mass book, containing one of about twenty anaphoras of the Church, was made for Wäldä Mädḫǝn between 1929 and 1942 (that is, when Yoḥannǝs or John was Patriarch of Alexandris, 1928-1942, and Qerǝlos or Cyril was the metropolitan of Ethiopia, 1929-1950). It was written by the scribe Wändǝmmu Gashaw (whose baptismal name was Gäbra Maryam) of Däbrä Libanos monastery, just north of Addis Ababba, Ethiopia. Written in Gǝ‛ǝz, the traditional liturgical language of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, the manuscript contains the Anaphora of Mary ascribed to Cyriacus, bishop of the city of Bahnasa, in Upper Egypt. There is a richly colored image of the Virgin and Child on the blank folio before the text, and the manuscript ends with a depiction of St. Michael conquering the Devil. Both illuminations were painted on reused text pages, which were added much later to give value to the manuscript. The late date of this work is a testimony to the remarkable continuation of the medieval manuscript tradition into the modern era in Ethiopia.

    Summary:
    This small, illuminated single-volume copy of the Qurʾan was produced in Ottoman Turkey in 1282 AH / 1865-6 CE by Muḥammad ibn Muṣṭafá Izmīrī, a pupil of al-Rudūsī. The colophon in ijāzah script indicates that the present codex is the twenty-first copy executed by him (fol. 304b). The manuscript opens with an illuminated double-page incipit with the verses of chapters 1 (Sūrat al-fātiḥah) and 2 (Sūrat al-baqarah) (fols. 1b-2a). The text is written in naskh script in black ink with reading marks in red. Verses are separated by illuminated discs with colored dots and chapter headings are in riqāʿ script in white ink. Polychrome medallions in the margins indicate textual divisions and prostration. The binding of black leather is contemporary with the manuscript and decorated with a tooled and gold-painted geometric design enclosed by gold frames on the upper and lower boards.

The main text is preceded by a detailed table of contents (fols. 1b-3a), and on fol. 3b it states that the work was dedicated to Sultan Abdülmecid (reg. 1255 AH / 1839 CE -- 1277 AH / 1861 CE). There are thirty illustrations of horses at the end of the manuscript. For full description, see http://www.thedigitalwalters.org/Data/WaltersManuscripts/html/W661/description.html

    Summary:
    This manuscript is a small illuminated single-volume copy of the Qurʾan, likely produced in Iran. A date is inscribed on the final page, which is interpreted as 1230 AH / 1814-5 CE (fol. 186b). The manuscript opens with an illuminated double-page incipit with the verses of chapter 1 (Sūrat al-fātiḥah) and the initial verses of chapter 2 (Sūrat al-baqarah), decorated with interlinear illumination (fols. 1b-2a). The text is in vocalized naskh script in black ink with reading marks in red and text divisions, such as thirty verses (juzʾ) or sixty verses (ḥizb), in the margins. Illuminated discs with colored dots separate the verses. Chapter headings are in riqāʿ script in red ink on a gold ground. The nineteenth-century lacquer binding with a floral composition on a gold field on the upper and lower boards seems to be contemporary with the manuscript. The insides of both boards are painted with a lobed yellow central medallion and pendants on an orange field.

    Date:

    Summary:
    This painting depicts a Mughal emperor, yet to be identified, seated in an inlaid chair of European design, on the bank of a brook in a rocky landscape. He is reading an unrolled document which may have been presented to him by the figure standing to his left. The standing figure bears some physiognomic resemblance to portraits of the Mughal emperor Akbar (r. 963-1014 AH / 1556-1605 CE). On the ground between the two figures is a crown and garment. A figure on horseback makes the gesture of surprise in the background. The painting was executed in India during the twelfth or thirteenth century AH / eighteenth or nineteenth CE. The polychrome floral borders surrounding the image are not much later than the image itself.

    Summary:
    This beautifully copied and bound Ethiopian Psalter likely belonged to one of the princes of the Gonderite royal family, whose reign ended in 1769. The main text of this undecorated manuscript is written in the ecclesiastical language of Gǝ‛ǝz while the minor texts are in Amharic, added at a later time. While the colophon and the hand suggest that the original manuscript only contained the 151 Psalms of David, which is in an early eighteenth-century hand, the other texts such as the fifteen Canticles, Song of Songs, Weddase Maryam (Encomium of Mary) and the Anqasa Berhan (Porch of Light) were added in the nineteenth century to create a more complete Psalter. More unusual texts, unrelated to the Psalter, have also been added, for it begins with a homily admonishing the clergy to conduct themselves well spiritually, and ends with directions for undoing charms. The life of the manuscript can be traced not only in these cumulative texts, but also in added prayers for later owners, of which there are at least twelve appended to the ends of the Biblical texts.

    Summary:
    This prayer scroll was written in the nineteenth century to protect its owner, Wäldä Giyorgis. The front of the scroll contains prayers against evil which invoke the help of the Archangel Phanuel, while the back contains prayers requesting things as diverse as luck in love, help with headaches, and the protection of domestic animals. Scrolls such as these would have been worn as protective devices, and were made the length of the owner in order to protect them from head to foot. With a length of 151 cm, it can be inferred that Wäldä Giyorgis stood just under 5 feet tall.

The fragments are part of the Classics Department Papyri Collection, which is currently on deposit (with access to the original fragments by special request only) in Special Collections. In the 1980s, the department purchased about 75 Egyptian papyri for use as a teaching and research collection. The provenance of the papyri is uncertain, but like many others they could have been found in ancient garbage dumps or mummy wrappings (cartonnage). Hellenistic in origin, nearly all date from 250-150 BCE. Their texts, written in ancient Greek and Demotic, are documentary in nature: official letters, receipts, accounts, contracts, petitions (including one from jail), land measurement, public sale at auction, and lists of names.

Summary:
The Jordan Papers span 1861-1951, although the bulk of the collection dates between 1891 and 1929. Very few items pre-date Jordan's connection with Stanford University and there is very little material after the severe stroke he suffered in the summer of 1929. The papers of Jessie Knight Jordan [Series I-F], cover the two years of Jordan's illness, her reminiscences and the memoires of his old friends. The collection consists primarily of Jordan's voluminous correspondence (62.25 linear ft.) relating to professional and university matters, but also contains other types of material such as writings (published and unpublished), clippings, journals and diaries, scrapbooks, financial papers, biographical and genealogical information, and photographs. The major subjects are those which deeply involved David Starr Jordan during his lifetime. In his autobiography, The Days of a Man, he described himself as A Naturalist, Teacher, and Minor Prophet of Democracy. Jordan was a naturalist-first a botanist and secondly and of greater significance an ichthyologist. In the latter field, his works are still considered authoritative. In this role he was also interested in conservation, zoological nomenclature and the protection of fur seals, which endeavor was extremely important and highly documented. All his life he was a teacher. Even when he was a university president at Indiana and Stanford he personally taught courses. His career as a public lecturer, beginning in 1871, was an educational endeavor-to teach natural history, moral goals and standards, the progress of education and peace and international arbitration. As an educator Jordan brought the separation of education from religion and the system of elective courses learned at Cornell to the new western universities. In the field of science he emphasized the importance of field and laboratory work rather than mere reliance on textbooks. He developed the idea of a junior college and was responsible for developing Stanford University into an intellectually competitive university rather than the technical training school envisioned by the founders. Social Darwinism was the major cause of Jordan's devotion to peace and his interests in eugenics, temperance, non-smoking and genealogy. Anything that, to his mind, threatened to weaken or destroy man's natural abilities and health, Jordan fought against. According to Jordan, was affected the degeneration of the race by destroying the most promising men and leaving the least desirable at home to reproduce and create the future generations. He was limited by his puritan heritage and his belief in the superiority of a biological, intellectual elite. The David Starr Jordan Papers in the Hoover Institution Archives contain the majority of Jordan's papers relating to politics and pacifism. A guide to that collection is available in the reading room of the Department of Special Collections.

Summary:
The Forum on the Future of Scientific Publishing was held on Thursday, June 27, 2013, at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge on the Stanford University Campus. The Forum allowed major stakeholders to present their perspectives on impending federal policy changes regarding open access to scientific research. The event included speakers from scientific society publishers, commercial publishers, university libraries, university researchers, open access advocates, companies involved in big data, government agencies. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has directed federal agencies "to develop plans to make the published results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication... Such results include peer-reviewed publications and digital data." These agencies were required to submit draft plans by August 22, 2013. Funding agency responses could dramatically change how scientific information is exchanged and archived, as well as how scientific research is performed in the US. We feel strongly that university faculty should be aware of the preliminary proposals being developed by the funding agencies and their potential impacts on the University research community. This event was sponsored by Stanford University Dean of Research Office, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford School of Engineering, American Physical Society, and the Stanford Photonics Research Center.
