As an intellectual nexus on campus, Stanford Libraries offers students, faculty and scholars online and offline environments to explore, investigate and collaborate. With a network of 20 libraries, visitors can engage with primary resources, connect to journals, articles and databases, partner with subject matter experts for assignments and research, discover ways to access and manipulate collections in digital libraries across the globe, and attend workshops—including geospatial tools and introductions to R, Python and Stata among many other topics.

Stanford Libraries have destinations for quiet and collaborative study, where visitors can immerse themselves among unique and rare materials from collections like the Silicon Valley Archives, the David Rumsey Map Collection, the Bob Fitch Photography Archive of major social justice movements, Chinese Comic Books and University Archives. The Libraries team and resources support all disciplines and seek to provide visitors with a safe, welcoming and productive environment suitable for their scholarly pursuits.
