Research and Instruction is the team within Lane Library responsible for actively providing education and research-related support to the Stanford Medicine community, including Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.

What We Do

The focus of the R&I team is education. Through collaboration, consultation, and training, the team provides expert assistance on topics related to medical education, evidence-based medicine, scholarly communications, research impact, and the management and sharing of research data.

The core R&I team is also integral to Lane Library’s liaison program, which pairs each department within the School of Medicine to an individual librarian.
