William Stafford: An Annotated Bibliography
, by James W. Pirie & our own Special Collections staff, is the authoritative bibliography of Stafford's writings. It coincides with the centennial celebration of Stafford's birth in 2014.
William Stafford (1914-1993) was one of the most prolific and important American poets of the last half of the twentieth century. Among his many awards, Stafford served as Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, and received the National Book Award in 1963 for his poetry collection Traveling through the Dark. During his lifetime, Stafford wrote over sixty books of poetry that still resonate with a wide range of readers. Stafford's perspectives on peace, the environment, and education serve as some of the most articulate dialogues by a modern American writer.
James W. Pirie (1913-2002) was the author of Books for Junior College Libraries: A Selected List of Approximately 19,700 Titles (1969) and Typology of Institutions of Higher Education
(1974). As the well-respected Director of Aubrey R. Watzek Library at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, from 1966 to 1982, Pirie worked closely with his friend and colleague William Stafford to maintain an accurate bibliographic record of Staffords numerous publications. Following James Piries death in 2002, the Lewis & Clark College Special Collections staff expanded and updated Pirie's bibliography for this volume, the only comprehensive bibliography of William Stafford's writings.

Check out Watzek's latest digital project
! LC students post photos and analyses of their study abroad experiences, and we get to see what they're up to in real time.
This semester, visit the site to observe what LC students are experiencing in India
. And next semester, check in for updates from students studying in Ecuador.
In addition to providing a window into LC Overseas experiences, the site serves as a discussion tool for the group during their time abroad. Program leaders can identify themes for study and assign projects to students. Students then post photos and descriptive analyses to meet these assignments. The group can then convene and discuss what they have posted. We hope that future Overseas programs will adopt this flexible tool to supplement their study abroad curriculum!

Have you wanted to try out an E-reader, but didn't know anyone flush enough to own one? You're in luck as Watzek now offers three Nook E-readers for checkout!
We have already added several high-interest titles to our E-readers, but you're encouraged to let us know if you'd like us to add an E-book before you check out your E-reader for a two-week period. Like other materials in the library, it is completely free for you to check out an E-reader, and you are responsible for late fees and damaged items.
If you're confused about the difference between an E-reader and an E-book, or want to know what E-books we offer for your digital device, make sure you read the Watzek E-books and E-readers FAQ

Watzek Digital Initiatives is excited to present The Spiders of Lewis & Clark, a recent collaboration with Greta Binford and seventy BIO 100 students.
The goal of this project is to share information about the spiders that are generally found in Portland, Oregon, and specifically on the campus of Lewis & Clark College. During the Fall 2010 semester, students collected local spiders either on the campus of Lewis & Clark College, or in and around their homes in Portland. The students isolated DNA from the spiders, used PCR to amplify the Barcode gene CO1 (cytochrome oxidase 1), and photographed the spiders. We have compiled these photographs and made them available on this site with descriptions, DNA sequences, and links to further information about the species and groups we found.
We hope this information will foster appreciation of the little creatures with whom we share our world.
