Privileges for university & library affiliates

If you don't have a Campus ID Card, you may still qualify for courtesy Libraries privileges. Choose your affiliation from the menu for details or see the visitor access and borrowing privileges and our fee-based library card pages.

Is there wireless Internet access in the libraries?

Stanford community members have access via SUNet ID authentication. Across campus and within the libraries Wireless Access for Stanford Visitors is also available. Wifi does not include access to licensed library online content and databases.

Are public computers available to non-Stanford community members?

A limited number of public computers are available at each branch library. In Green Library, they are located in the East Wing, across from the main service desk.

Can I use copiers and scanners?

Yes, see Print, copy, scan for details.

Will I have access to electronic databases?

Perhaps. All licensed electronic resources are available from computers located in the libraries. However, some are restricted to current Stanford University faculty, staff, students and other authorized Stanford-affiliated users. Contact individual libraries if you have specific questions about an online resource.
