Student Journal Services

Authorized members may borrow material from participating libraries and from circulating Law Library collections and store them on designated journal shelves in the Law Library. The shelves are located on the first floor of the law library behind the Borrowing Services Desk. The shelves are labeled by article authors and all material housed here must be charged to the journal and flagged appropriately. Flags are located next to the shelves.

Material charged to journals may not leave the library. They should be treated as library use only. Scanning is self-service and there is a scanner available on each floor of the Law Library.

To request material that is unavailable or not owned by Stanford, please complete the Interlibrary Loan Request Form, below. Please do not submit more than one request for each title that your journal needs.
