Anqi Xu, pictured above, is one of 240 students who deposited their work to the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) as part of completing their programs of study at Stanford in 2020. Xu received her MA in East Asian Studies. Her thesis, available at PURL and SearchWorks, is a case study using a combination of business and design thinking analysis methods to explore the intersection of engineering, art making, and art viewing. She is one of five Stanford students selected for a fellowship to pursue a master’s degree in global affairs at Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
Stanford Libraries is proud to preserve and provide access to the scholarly works produced by students during their time “on the farm”, captured in the SDR before they move on to the next big moments in their impactful lives. Congratulations to Anqi and all the other 2020 graduates!
Spring and summer are typically the busiest quarters for student deposits in the SDR. With the global pandemic turning everything upside down this year, it was anyone’s guess how busy it would be in 2020. In the end, the 240 works deposited was super close to 2019 numbers (253 works deposited). The number of active collections dropped slightly from 33 to 30, and included two newly established program-based collections this year:
