Faculty Assistants

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 provide customized research support, including research consulting, data and bibliography compilation, data acquisition assistance, and case writing support.

  • Request research support (Research assistants and case writers: indicate your faculty member’s name in the request.)

Document Delivery Service

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.
