The Stanford University Libraries (SUL) is more than a cluster of libraries; it connects people with information by providing diverse resources and services to the academic community.

SUL includes more than 20 individual libraries across campus, each with a world-class collection of books, journals, films, maps, databases, and more. Subject Librarians are available for individual consultation, group classes, and special workshops.

SUL develops and maintains a broad array of information resources, including SearchWorks, article and indexing databases, e-journal subscriptions, and specialized collections crossing subjects, formats, and genres. SUL also provides computing resources, including public computers, digital scanning and editing equipment, support for multi-media projects, geospatial software support, and social science data and software services and support.
