East Asia Library news
As part of Stanford Libraries' research restart, materials from the East Asia Library stacks can now be paged and picked up the circulation desk. Additionally, paging of some materials from our collections at SAL1/2 for pickup at the East Asia Library has been restored.
On Monday, August 3, repairs will commence on the East Asia Library elevator. The repairs are expected to take approximately three weeks, during which time patrons will be unable to access the basement stacks.
The East Asia Library will resume in-person research activities and access to physical collections for some Stanford users beginning on Monday, June 22. Faculty (including emeriti), graduate students, post-docs, visiting scholars, and academic staff will be eligible to access the library's collections by appointment.
The East Asia Library is following the general guidelines set down by the university and Stanford Libraries under the current shelter-in-place order.
