Starting today, academic staff will also have the ability to make a reservation to visit Green Library, including Special Collections. We have launched a "Request and Pick up" service that allows any valid Stanford ID card holder to select available items in SearchWorks for minimal contact pick up at the entrance of Green Library nearest Coupa Cafe. Please be mindful of the checklist for researchers visiting the Libraries, which includes university requirements be completed prior to arriving on campus.
