I am a member of the Stanford community. I would like to use my iPad to read popular fiction, e.g. NY Times Best Sellers. Does SULAIR have anything for me? Can any library books be downloaded to my Kindle?
Stanford has hundreds of thousands of licensed e-books and collections that can be read online on computers, laptops, iPads and other web-enabled mobile devices via a web browser. However, most of our e-books cannot be downloaded to e-reader devices, like the Kindle. For some of our e-books, you will be able to download chapters of interest to your computer, but not the entire book. E-books are governed by copyright law and individual license agreements. Systematic downloading, distributing, or retaining substantial portions of licensed information is prohibited. Stanford libraries continues to work with publishers and vendors of e-books to develop more reader-friendly policies and terms for downloading of e-book content for the Stanford scholarly community.
Ebrary does allow downloading of entire books for a two-week period.

Where can I find reviews of newly published and older books?
There are many great sources for book reviews:

I am looking for an article that I think is in one of the online journals, but I can't find it. It is an article by Henning Ritter from around five years ago about Walter Benjamin. It appeared in New Literary History.
E-Journals shows that several vendors allow Stanford users to access the full text of New Literary History (just put the journal title in the search field). The database with the best range of holdings of this journal is Project Muse. If you click on the link for Project Muse, you can search New Literary History from 1995 to the present.

I'm trying to find information about foundations or other funding organizations. Where do I start?
