Mathematics and statistics collection

The Robin Li and Melissa Ma Science Library offers broad coverage of mathematics and statistics in a collection of books, journals, ebooks, ejournals, and databases.

Books and journals

Use SearchWorks to find books and journals held by the libraries at Stanford or available online to the Stanford community.  In some cases, license agreements for electronic resources restrict access to current Stanford students, faculty, and staff.

Journal articles

Journal articles can be found through databases.  The libraries subscribe to a number of databases including MathSciNet and Current Index to Statistics.  In some databases, you can create alerts that notify you when new articles of interest are published.  For finding older articles, the library holds Mathematical Reviews and other printed indexes.

Reference resources

Encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference works are available online, and a few are available in print.  Find reference works through SearchWorks or browse the reference collection in the library.

Technical reports 

A collection of technical reports is available at SAL3 and are indexed in SearchWorks.
