E-Mail (Electronic mail) -
All library staff have e-mail accounts. See Library Information Systems for more information.
Endowment Funds -
These funds have been established as a result of a written endowment agreement between the donor and the university. The general guideline for the use of these funds is that they are for one-time purchases,i.e., to be used as monograph funds. Funds to be spent on library materials are set up in the Collection Development budget. Funds that are designatedfor topics that relate to Subject Librarians' areas of responsibility are appropriated to those Subject Librarians. In some cases, several funds relating to one endowment are set up so that Subject Librarians can monitor their portions of the endowed fund. Funds which are unrestricted or which do not parallel Subject Librarians' areas of responsibility are monitored by the Director, Collections Services and the Head, Collection Development.Exchange Agreement

Duke University Press is our major supplier of titles sent on exchange.
