The Stanford Daily reported that 110 faculty and graduate students submitted a petition asking the Libraries to develop and implement a book and document delivery service to departmental offices. Assistant Professors of History Jennifer Burns and Mikael Wolfe, who co-authored the petition, were invited to present and explain their request to the Faculty Senate Committee on Libraries and the idea is being considered for feasibility and funding.
