Interlibrary Lending

Who can use Stanford Library’s Interlibrary Lending Service?

People who are not affiliated with Stanford may borrow materials from Stanford Library’s collections; however, requests for lending must be submitted through their home organization. We can only process requests submitted by:

  • Academic, public, corporate, law and specialized libraries
  • US government agencies
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Public libraries (independent researchers)

We cannot process lending requests submitted by individuals or supply materials directly to individuals. The only exception is for faculty and graduate students from UC Berkeley and UT Austin through the Research Library Cooperative Program.

All requests are subject to copyright considerations and approval of the holding library.
