Smartphones can now search for books & articles

Since we launched the Library’s mobile website 4 weeks ago, users have been able to use their smartphones to search for and request books, find and read articles, IM or text us for research assistance, and get a range of information about the Library. Over this time usage of the mobile site has steadily increased. Last week over 500 users visited the site.

We’re also steadily improving the mobile site. This week we added the ability to view databases and research guides organized by subject area.

Let us know what you’d like to see on the mobile site.

Rare SF Giants Clip from TV Archive

Enjoy this rare SF Giants clip from the San Francisco Bay Area TV Archive! Originally produced by KRON-TV news on April 14, 1958, it features a downtown tickertape parade welcoming the Giants to San Francisco for their first season after moving west from New York. It also includes scenes from their opening game at Seals Stadium, against the LA Dodgers. The clip was excerpted from a  longer compilation of news highlights from 1958, which can be viewed in its entirety below, along with a number of other clips from the Archive related to Bay Area sports.
