Where can I browse for good fiction books at Stanford?
In addition to searching for fiction books by author or title in Socrates, you can also browse one of several specially designated collections of fiction titles:
Stanford's collections are large and unlike a public library, it is difficult to browse the literature sections. However, if you want to browse these, check out the section with call numbers beginning in PS for American literature and PR for English literature. For literature in other languages, see Library of Congress Classification Outline.

I would like to look into the history of Stanford's involvement in human performance or athletics. Do you have any suggestions?
On the general topic of the history of Stanford athletics, a Searchworks search for "Stanford University Athletics" returns over 100 items in your results, including Champions: a century of Stanford sports : videorecording, 1991.
Another good source is the Human Performance Lab at the Stanford School of Medicine. You might even want to contact the lab to talk to someone about their history.
Finally, you can visit the University Archivist in Special Collections to discuss options for searching university archives and newspapers.
