Reference, Research & Instructional Services
Please feel free to call, email email@example.com and visit us in person. We would be delighted to give you a tour of RCLL and acquaint you with everything we have to offer. We’d also like to know of and assist with your research interests.
We can visit you in your office to help you access resources. We can show you how to access resources from off campus too—while at home, or traveling, etc.

Library Catalog Portal
SearchWorks, Stanford’s library catalog, is your gateway to the holdings of the Stanford University Libraries. The catalog allows you to keyword search and browse through electronic and print resources owned by the law library as well as the numerous other libraries on campus.
Available through Socrates, the e-journals list allows you to browse by journal title or search by keyword to determine where and how to access electronic versions of your favorite journals.
The Stanford community enjoys access to a wide variety of databases. These databases include content such as historical newspaper archives (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times), current corporate news (Business Source Complete) and much, much more.
