Information about using special collections materials in classes for Stanford instructors

Reserve the Special Collections and University Archives classroom

To schedule an introductory class in our classroom (the Barchas Seminar Room) and arrange use of Special Collections materials for your course, please contact Tim Noakes, Special Collections Public Services, by email.

Due to current restrictions  the classroom  can only accommodate 8 students. Larger classes will be divided and separate sessions scheduled. Since there is a great demand to the use the Barchas Room, instructors are encouraged to contact us well in advance. We recommend 4-6 weeks lead time.
