Books in Terman Library

Welcome to Stanford and the School of Engineering. As you prepare to start your studies, the Engineering library has pulled together some helpful tips for getting started with doing research at Stanford.

The Terman Engineering Library has three Engineering Subject Specialists to answer your questions and help you get what you need for your projects and research. Please feel free to reach out to us.

Terman Engineering Library stacks

During June and July, the Terman Engineering Library will continue to reduce the number of items on the shelves in the library in order to add additional student study space.  This project will include the transfer of approximately 4500 books to SAL3 and the removal of four ranges of shelving, a 40% reduction in shelving capacity.  After the move of collections, the library will have approximately 7000 items on the remaining four stack ranges.  The newly available floor space will allow for six new study tables and four new individual study carrels, a total of 28 additional seats, representing a 30% increase in seating capacity at the library. Mike Nack, project lead, has prepared a summary document.   The library will be open during the move of materials, although during the dismantling of the stacks currently scheduled for the second week of July, students may want to find a quieter location to study.
