Faculty Assistants

Stanford GSB faculty assistants can use the following library services to support their faculty.

Borrowing on Behalf of Faculty

You are permitted to check out material for your faculty by proxy. Just inform the i-Desk that an item is being checked out in a professor’s name.

Research Assistance

Our librarians and data scientists provide customized research support, including research consulting, data analytics, research computing, data and bibliography compilation, data acquisition assistance, and case writing support.

Document Delivery

Due to Santa Clara County’s shelter-in-place order, access to physical materials through interlibrary borrowing is currently unavailable. We are only accepting requests for articles, book chapters, or material if available online. For course-related questions, please contact Lars Flatmo.

Need an article, book, book chapter, or paper for work-related research? We’ll obtain a single copy of the material for you — whether it’s at our library, another Stanford library, or off-campus.

How long does it take?

  • Items available on campus are typically delivered within a day; occasionally, it may take several days to deliver a requested item.
  • Some items requested from non-Stanford libraries can be delivered electronically within a day, while others may take several weeks to arrive by mail.

Course Reserves

We can set aside materials in advance for students enrolling in your courses. When you request in advance with detailed information, we can process your reserve material by the beginning of the quarter.

Case Study Distribution

The Case Writing Office supports faculty with Stanford GSB case distribution and obtaining cases from other institutions.

Faculty Guest Borrowing Privileges

Special borrowing privileges at Stanford GSB library are available to colleagues of our faculty. To secure such privileges, contact us with the following information:

  • The guest’s name
  • The sponsoring faculty member’s name
  • Desired start and end dates for access

The sponsoring faculty member is responsible for any unpaid fines.

Bibliography Management Tools

We provide subscriptions to software that are compatible with our databases to help you manage your research references and create bibliographies across multiple citation formats.

Some tools are free for any Stanford user, such as RefWorks, while you may need to pay to license others from your research funds.
