Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR) includes more than 30 libraries and programs supporting research, teaching, and learning at Stanford University. SULAIR acquires and delivers library collections in all formats, establishes policies and standards to guide the use of academic information resources, develops training and support programs for academic uses of computers, and maintains a broad array of electronic information resources, including the online library catalog and several hundred article and indexing databases and electronic journal subscriptions.

In each library unit, knowledgeable professional staff provide assistance in locating and using print and online information resources. Subject specialists and reference librarians are available for individual consultation, group classes, demonstrations, and special workshops by request.

Libraries throughout campus provide group and individual study spaces, public computers, personal laptop connections, photocopy machines, and digital scanners for use by Stanford faculty, staff, and students.
