Stanford Libraries and Resources

Exploration, investigation, and knowledge creation occurs across 20 campus libraries. Stanford Libraries has more than 9.5 million physical volumes in its collection, and more than one million scholarly items available via the Stanford Digital Repository that are produced by Stanford scholars or collected by librarians.

A treasure trove of material relating to the history of science and technology, including the Apple Computer archive, the Hewlett-Packard papers, and collections spanning the 21st-century gaming industry, are housed in the Department of Special Collections alongside the archives of famous literary figures like

John Steinbeck and Allen Ginsberg. The David Rumsey Map Center is located on the 4th floor of Green Library. The first-of-its-kind map center is fully integrated with technology and Geographical Information Services software, offering state-of-the-art research facilities and methods.
