Current status of library services



  • Request and pick up

    Eligible Stanford ID cardholders can request and pick up materials from several library collections. (Note: this service does not grant you admittance into the library.)

    The GSB Library now offers pickup service for Business Library materials.

  • Limited access to library spaces

    To support research at Stanford, some of our spaces are open, many by appointment only. To comply with safety guidelines, we can permit only a limited number of people in. At this time, access to these spaces is limited to the following current Stanford ID cardholders: graduate students, post-docs, professors (including emeriti), academic staff, fellows, and Stanford visiting scholars.
