Materials may need to be paged to the reading room at least 24 hours in advance.  Stanford Community members will need to show their current Stanford I.D. to the portal monitors when entering Green Library; Center staff will also ask for your I.D. when entering the Center. Please note that the David Rumsey Map Center is not an open study space but it is a center for viewing paged materials and using the technology available in the center through mediation by Center staff.
