Welcome Jr. Statesmen
Jr. Statesmen, welcome to the Stanford University Libraries. This page is designed to help you find some of the most important library resources for your research. If you have questions, check first with your counselor or teacher.
Green Library Logistics
Public kiosks are available for your use on the First Floor of Green East. The kiosks give you access to the catalog (Searchworks), and the Internet; however, they do not include word processing packages. There is a $.10/page charge for printing. To print from a library kiosk you must have a copy card. You can buy a copy card at the machine across from the Loan Desk for $1, but that only gives you a card (no pages). To put value on it for copying, you need to put in more money. The copy card machine takes bills up to $20.
Accessing and Checking out books: You will only be able to check out books from Green or our overflow libraries (SAL libraries). For books listed as being in Green Library, check Green Library Shelving Locations online. There are also wallet-sized shelving location guides at the IC desk that you can take with you. The Searchworks catalog records have links to "map" the location of items in Green Library.
Sometimes the item location will be "SAL". These items may be paged to Green Library by clicking on the link to "Page for delivery".
