No, not those portals – Lane’s Specialty Portals! Lane has a wide variety of specialty portals designed to meet the varied information needs of many of the departments, divisions, centers, and nursing units here at Stanford Medicine.

You might be asking yourself, but what exactly is a “specialty portal” and how does it benefit me?


Our specialty portals are designed to be a starting point for research in your specialty. Each of our portals was created by Lane’s liaison librarians and features direct links to some of the most frequently used resources in each department, including databases, journals, books, clinical calculators, videos, and much more!

Set your department’s portal as your browser’s homepage and have your department’s most frequently used resources right at your fingertips.


Are we missing a portal for your department? Does your department’s portal need to be updated?

Contact the liaison librarian for your department, and we’ll work with you to choose the resources that work best for your department!
