Access and privileges

Access policies described here apply to the Stanford University Libraries. Coordinate libraries (e.g., Business, Law, Hoover, Medical) and department libraries (Classics, Philosophy) may have separate access requirements and borrowing policies; consult them directly for information about using their facilities and resources.


Knight, Stegner, CASBS, and Stanford Humanities Center Fellows are entitled to Fellow Campus ID Cards, issued by the Campus ID Card Office. These cards provide library access and borrowing privileges. CASBS Fellows should contact their department library for a special paging service to have library items retrieved from the stacks.
