Stanford Libraries and Resources

Stanford Libraries are a dynamic network of resources, spaces and subject experts that is designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity. With over 12 million items, 50 subject specialists, 20 campus libraries and a broad spectrum of services available, the opportunities for contributing to and transforming scholarship are infinite.

The Libraries also offer workshops, like introductions to Python, R, Strata and geospatial tools, and provide emerging technologies for analysis of data in both the humanities and sciences. Browse hundreds of digital collections online or deposit research into the Stanford Digital Repository for safekeeping and sharing. 

A few library study spots include Hohbach Hall, the Lane Reading Room, the Bender Room and the David Rumsey Map Center in Cecil H. Green Library. Campus libraries like the East Asia Library, Terman Engineering Library and the Robin Li and Melissa Ma Science Library offer areas for contemplation, collaboration and focus as well.
