Sponsor SUNet IDs for eResource Access

Library electronic resources are licensed for Stanford-related teaching, learning, or research work by Authorized Users. Most resources limit Authorized Users to current Stanford faculty, staff and students. Sharing of electronic resources with third parties who are not Authorized Users, including co-authors who are not affiliated with Stanford, is a violation of license terms.

If you need access to library electronic resources for verifiable, Stanford-related academic use, share this information with the person who sponsored your SUNet, often a department admin or supervisor.

Your sponsor will need to log into Sponsorship Manager to add the “Library e-resources” sponsorship to the base or full service SUNet ID sponsorship of your sponsee. See more detailed instructions.

The sponsorship of library electronic resources does not include physical library services such as building access, borrowing materials, inter-library services, etc.
