There are lots of things about your research that you can ask a librarian. Just as an example from me, I have helped Stanford students and faculty find things like information about earthquake legal notices in New Zealand, locate patents for video games and mechanical technologies, getting access to restricted technical reports from NASA... and a lot more!
In addition to the Reference Desk, you can also feel free to contact librarian subject specialists directly. Many of the relevant subject librarians for this class are listed below. In addition, you might also be interested in resources from our Social Science Data and Software group.
