Library privileges for visiting scholar

Question: I am a visiting scholar doing a 6 months internship in applied physics at Stanford. I have a Sunet ID and an email account here, but since I was recruited as an hourly employee here, I do not have a student ID, but a temporary access card. For my research internship, I really need to borrow books from libraries.

Answer: If the department that you are affiliated with has named you a Visiting Scholar (as opposed to a scholar who is visiting), then you should have been given a Visiting Scholar card. If so, you may bring that card to the Privileges Desk in Green Library during regular business hours (8am-5pm, Mon-Fri) along with a current photo ID (passport, driver's license, university ID, etc.). We can then use those items to issue you a library card.

If you are not a Visiting Scholar but are working as an hourly employee, You may have your supervisor fill out the attached form. You must then bring that completed form to the Privileges Desk during regular business hours along with a photo ID and we can then issue you a library card.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office.
