I lost a book borrowed from the library. How much fine do you charge for lost books? May I buy a new version of the book to make up?
We charge a $75.00 replacement fee and a $5.00 non-refundable billing fee for each lost book. You may supply a replacement copy as long as it is an exact copy of the lost book. If you can supply a replacement copy, you will not have to pay the $75.00 replacement fee but you will be charged a $25.00 processing fee.

Do books have to be returned to the same library they were checked out at, or may they be returned to any of Stanford's libraries?
Yes, you may return books to a different library than the one from which they were charged out. The Libraries have arrangements to send books back to the owning library. However, if you can manage it, we recommend that you bring the books back to the owning library to ensure the book gets back to its proper library in a timely manner.

Stacks or stack area refer to the space in a library where the majority of library materials are shelved. There are 3 floors of "stacks" in the East Wing and 7 floors of "stacks" in the West (Bing) Wing. Green Library also has other locations so make sure your catalog record says the book is in STACKS.
Here is a map (not to scale) of the stack areas. Here is a Stack Directory by Call number. You can access this from your Mobile Phone too! (we also have pocket Stack Location Guides at the Information Center desk).

How can I mail something to a specific building at Stanford? I don't know what mail codes and ZIP codes to use.
The basic Stanford ZIP code is 94305, and you tack on the Stanford mail code after that. For example, the Law School's mail code is 8610, so you'd list the ZIP as 94305-8610. If you have a SUNet ID, you can see all of the mail codes here. If you don't have a SUNet ID, you'll need someone (like the folks at the Green Library Information Desk) to look them up for you.
