Teaching with Special Collections: Request collection materials

Information about using special collections materials in classes for Stanford instructors

Request collection materials using SearchWorks

When planning for Special Collections classes, request materials using Stanford Libraries' catalog SearchWorks. Enter the name of your class in the comments field when selecting items in SearchWorks. Once retrieved, the requested material will be stored in the Special Collections reading room until the time of the session. Requests should be reviewed and finalized at least a week in advance of the class.

Information about identifying and requesting materials in SearchWorks can be found in the Using Special Collection and University Archives LibGuide.
