Borrow Library Items
Use the SearchWorks library catalog to find items available at Stanford. Most Stanford GSB Library items are available to request for pickup. If an item is available in another location and doesn’t have a request button, you will need to go to that library to locate it and check it out. Faculty and staff can submit a Document Delivery request.
Request Items for Pickup
Some library items can be requested for pickup at various libraries on campus.
Request Available Items
Items at some campus libraries, including the GSB library, are available to be requested for pickup. After locating the item in SearchWorks, use the Request button and pay attention to where you can select the pickup location (image at right). You’ll get an email when the items are ready; it may take a few business days.
Request Checked Out Items
In SearchWorks, you can request items that are currently checked out. When you do this, we will try to get the item from another library for you. If we cannot, we will “recall” the item, which means the person who currently has it checked out will need to return it soon, typically within 7 days, so that you can use it.
Tip! Sometimes another campus library has the same item you’re looking for, so check SearchWorks for another copy you can get faster.
