The Perkins Library System began to receive eBooks from our major North American book supplier on November 25, 2010. The library is actively increasing its eBook collection in support of our current strategic plan, Sharpening Our Vision: Duke University Libraries' Strategic Plan for 2010-2012. Print titles will still comprise 80%-90% of the library's monograph collection.
We recognize that researchers sometimes prefer a print copy of a book for a wide variety of reasons, and therefore invite Duke community members to request that a print copy be purchased if the eBook is not preferred. To request a print book be purchased, please contact the appropriate subject librarian or send your request directly to the Perkins Library Collection Development Department (Duke NetID login required).
The library recognizes that the format of the book, along with the content, plays an important role in the research process and therefore has created the E-Book Advocacy Statement. The library welcomes your thoughts and ideas about this change in format, If you have any questions about the library's growing eBook collection, please contact Aisha Harvey, the Head of Collection Development.
