Materials from other libraries, including Green Library, can now be picked up at the East Asia Library.  Additionally, patrons are now able to borrow materials from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan.

Stanford Libraries has expanded its pickup and request services so that patrons may now place requests to pick up materials from Green Library, SAL1/2, and SAL3 at the East Asia Library.  Patrons can also request items from the East Asia Library stacks to be held at the East Asia Library circulation desk for convenient pickup.  Additionally, East Asia Library materials can also be picked up at Green Library and other branch libraries.  Items that have been made available electronically through the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service are still not available for request and pickup.

To request that items be delivered to the East Asia Library for pickup, first locate the materials that you would like to request in the SearchWorks catalog.  Available materials will show a blue "Request" button near the call number on their SearchWorks record. Materials that do not have this button are not currently available for paging. To pick up an item, click the "Request" button and follow the instructions given.  Make sure to choose the East Asia Library as the pickup location.  Request and pickup at the East Asia Library will follow the same policies and procedures as at Green Library.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary borrowing of physical items through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is now available.  To request books and other physical materials, visit our Interlibrary borrowing page and follow the instructions to log into the request form.  Please note that at the moment, requests may take longer than usual to be fulfilled.
