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.

If you can’t find a digital version of an item you need in SearchWorks or HathiTrust, we’ll do our best to buy it. You can also check out our FAQs for alternative solutions.
Many course reserves are also available online.
