Stanford GSB PhD Students

A wide range of library services is available to all Stanford GSB PhD students, including research consultation, research workshops, borrowing learning materials, and more.

Borrow, Renew, Return

Circulating material in the library can be checked out at the i-Desk or at the self-service machines. All borrowed material is subject to recall after two weeks.

Equipment Checkout

We have several types of equipment available to the Stanford GSB community for checkout from the Library i-Desk. The equipment includes phone and laptop chargers, headphones, various cables, projectors and an audio recorder. Selected games are also available. All equipment (including phone chargers) and games can be checked out for 24 hour periods.

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.


We can meet with you to discuss your research where we can offer suggested resources and connect you with other relevant services on campus.

Interlibrary Loan

Can’t find the book or journal you need on campus? The library provides an interlibrary borrowing service to support the learning and research of Stanford GSB students. Submit a request and you will be notified by email when your material is available. (Other Stanford students should contact Green Library for interlibrary services.)​
