Connect to e-resources from any location
Can’t connect to an e-resource, like an article or an eBook? When you are not on the Stanford network, e-resource providers need to be aware of your Stanford affiliation. The surest option to establish your affiliation is to use SearchWorks or the library website to locate e-resource links. These links have a Stanford prefix built in.
