by Mr. James R. (Librarian) Jacobs

Welcome to the fall 2019 quarter at Stanford libraries. We're here for all of your information and data needs, and it all starts at library.stanford.edu. One of the ways we do that is to subscribe to databases of various types of content and information - journal articles, news, ebooks, archival resources, statistics and data, images, streaming video,  and more. We currently have 2550(!) databases on the library's databases page.
