The Robert Crown Law Library Special Collections was formally established in 1999. Stanford’s library staff, faculty, and administration gathered a wealth of photographs, documents, and ephemera for the 25th Anniversary of Crown Quadrangle, commemorated the opening of the permanent home of Stanford Law School. The Robert Crown Law Library Special Collection was created to preserve and store these newly formed collections of historical records. The collections are most heavily used by the Stanford Law School’s community to document program development, and to showcase our growth and accomplishments of our faculty and students. The collection is primarily used for research and outreach on the behalf of the Robert Crown Law School community and to tell the story of its development. The collection is focused on the following areas:
The Special Collections Librarian at the Robert Crown Law Library Special Collection is responsible for collection development, and accessioning of donated materials. The Special Collections Librarian reviews items for acquisition based on the above criteria on an ongoing basis. All acquisition decisions are made in collaboration with the Collection Development committee from the Robert Crown Law Library.
